Returning to the Craft Cubed Festival this year is Craft’s Window Walk Project. This project explores the intersections between craft and community, offering the general public opportunistic engagment with contemporary craft and design, created by over 30 artists in collaboration with venues around the City of Melbourne in unique site-specific installations.
Craft is thrilled to present this mini retrospective by highly regarded contemporary jeweller Linda Hughes. Hughes jewellery explores different ways in which we use and decipher the stripe in every day street-scapes. In this exhibition we see a deeper investigation into the political and social settings of the stripe in western painting. Hidden meanings and cultural mores move between playful, fashionable and symbols of alienation.
Opening Saturday 26 August, 5 - 7pm, Collins Place Gallery, Opening remarks by RMIT Emeritus Professor Robert Baines. The exhibition is also featured as part of Craft Cubed Festival and Radiant Pavillion.
