WOOD: art design architecture, brings together 30 works by contemporary Australian artists and a stellar line up of public programs.
Exhibition - 18 OCTOBER to 29 NOVEMBER 2014
Bringing together furniture and functional objects, sculpture, and architectural works, WOOD: art design architecture themes of place, identity, sustainability, ecology, craftsmanship and technology through the medium of this fundamental material.
The exhibition will feature the work of a range of contemporary Australian artists, designers, and architects including ARM Architecture, Brian Hooper, Drew Heath, John Wardle, and Paul Morgan.
The results are remarkable — from a pair of pine-wood high tops to lamps made from recycled logs.
