Carriageworks presents HERE AND NOW, a series of three projects curated by Liane Rossler. HERE AND NOW offers new commissions and limited edition works by Australian artists and designers which are only available at Carriageworks. The spirit of HERE AND NOW is artist-driven and experimental. Each of the projects is organised around one concept and will be shown in a custom-designed space. The projects are USEFUL, TOTES, and LUCKY.
LUCKY will see some of Australia’s most exciting artists and designers including Tanja Binggeli, Rachel Buckeridge, Priscilla Bourne, David Capra, Eddy Carroll, Julie Green, Leah Jackson, Lyn & Tony, Kate Mitchell, Kevin Murray, Sarah Read, Marilyn Schneider, David Sequeira, Rena Shein, Andrew Simpson, Tiffany Singh and Paul Yore developing new works for Carriageworks. Keepsakes, charms, and talismans will abound, embracing diverse cultural and social interpretations that exist surrounding luck. Submit your wish to the ‘Luck Bank’ for a free fortune.
Be brave and take a lucky dip, make a wish, or try your luck at the CHARM SCHOOL workshop with Kevin Murray to discover how charms bring luck and develop a prototype on which someone can pin hopes.
The CHARM SCHOOL with Kevin Murray will now be rescheduled to a future date.
