Concrete: Art Design Architecture
West End creative hub JamFactory will showcase 21 standout projects by contemporary Australian artists, designers and architects in its new exhibition Concrete: art design architecture.
The groundbreaking exhibition collects products and works that reflect the ubiquitous material’s place in modern creative practice.
Concrete has been used functionally for more than 3000 years, but we rarely consider its versatility. Here, you can see it used to striking effect in handcrafted jewellery, visual artworks, sculpture, outdoor furniture and awe-inspiring buildings.
There is also an accompanying free talk from exhibiting artists Megan Cope, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah and Elvis Richardson on Saturday March 2, from 10am to 12pm. And a free panel discussion featuring speakers Dr Guy Keulemans (multidisciplinary designer and artist), Tim Hansford (director at Love Concrete), Eleanor Amor (emerging Adelaide artist and arts writer) and Yan Zhuge (professor of structural engineering, UniSA) on Saturday March 23 at 2pm.
Concrete: art design architecture is open daily, from 9am to 5pm.
