Open Door: Contemporary Makers and Designers

24 August - 5 October

Artists: Lionel Bawden, Kristel Britcher, Mark Edgoose, Warwick Freeman, Gillian Garvie, Tallara Gray, Cassie Leatham, Beverly Meldrum, Rowsaan, N’dene Riley, Rebecca Robinson, Vipoo Srivilasa, Lisa Waup and Dominic White

Curated by Julie Ewington

Open Door considers how contemporary makers think about arrival and welcoming. Entrances are highly charged, signalling social as well as physical transitions. Doorways identify inhabitants; a good doorway makes a great start to the day and a happy return; as feng shui suggests, energy enters through the front door. Yet the importance of the doorway, and the threshold, is often overlooked. This exhibition includes contemporary door-furniture by artists and makers in a variety of media, considering how this aspect of the built environment is beautiful, as well as useful, in Australian life.
