Warm Design

Inspired by the hybridisation of Tasmania’s artist, designer and maker culture, curators Phoebe Adams and Sara Lindsay present new works from local artists to consider how design can be ‘warmed’ by ‘the presence of emotional content, the expression of socio-political concerns, and how this could be communicated with honesty and authenticity.’ The premise of ‘Warm Design’ is connected to Queer Theory, which rejects oppositional binary relationships. The show includes artists Phoebe Adams, Murray Antill, Dr Philip Blacklow, Sean Coyle, Sarah Jones, Sara Lindsay, Dee Taylor Graham and Dr Zoe Veness.
