Description

Australian Design Centre free gallery tours


Make the most of your trip to the Australian Design Centre with our free daily exhibition tours.

Our friendly gallery staff will introduce you to our current exhibitions, gallery space and Object Shop.

Currently showing:

Gallery One: Obsessed: Compelled to Make

Obsessed: Compelled to make presents the work of 14 artists from across Australia, delving beyond the finished object, beyond the personality of the maker, into the fundamental conceptual framework of their creations. We look at the complexities of their materials and processes, the realities of their day-to-day studio routine and unravel what compels each maker to create over the course of their personal career – Why this technique or material? Why that concept? How does the mind of a maker work?

This exhibition explores the act of making through the framework of obsession – how it consumes us, carrying
 us along in its wake, colouring every aspect of our lives.
 With these professional artists, it is their obsessions, and all the associated angst, failures, breakthroughs and milestones, that feeds their productivity and to deliver exceptional outcomes.
