EXHIBITION OPENING | AGENCY BY DESIGN

Expressive Design for Disability

MAIN GALLERY

11 May, 2:00PM

Free event, please RSVP

Join the artists, designers and exhibitors in celebrating the opening of Agency by Design, with guest speaker Carol Taylor.

artisan’s Agency by Design exhibition explores how design for disability does not follow a one size fits all model and is not only about functionality. New design is now being tailored to physical and expressive individual needs.  Many of the designs profiled in Agency by Design allow the wearer to project a powerful image of how they want to be seen, whether that be glamorous, elegant, strong or simply just wanting to reveal their own life passions.  Other designs enhance socialisation or provide individualised assisted technology solutions. The exhibition includes jewellery, apparel, ocular prosthetics, furniture and technology and includes the work of designers Leah Heiss and Carol Taylor, and organizations Bravery Co, Technology for Aging and Disability Queensland and Artificial Eyes Australia.

Also opening this evening in artisan’s small object space is Helen Wyatt I Walk the Line. Wyatt uses narrative jewellery to explore edges, walls and fences as the material expression of transitional sites – places where nature and culture intersect. Consequently, she has been walking through landscapes, studying ordinary elements that define ownership and use of land. I Walk the Line will showcase a selection of new wearable objects that explore Wyatt’s conceptual concerns.
