Contemporary Glass: Refracting a History

co-curated by Nadia Mercuri & Incinerator Gallery

 

 7 August - 27 September

This exhibition rediscovers the history of glassmaking in Moonee Valley. The chemical company, ICI Australia, operated a research facility in Ascot Vale during the 1950s and 1960s that employed dozens of glass workers. The community had a good knowledge of glass production and specialist skills to handle this ancient substance.

A selection of invited contemporary artists working with glass will recontextualise these technical and industrial practices to reference the origins of glass and its industrial and scientific history.

Kristel Britcher, Georgina Cockshott, Jennifer Ashley King, Jeremy Lepisto, Kristin McFarlane, Nadia Mercuri, Philip Stokes, Blanche Tilden, Bethany Wheeler. 

Opens Friday, 7 August from 6pm-8pm. All welcome with light refreshments served. Join the event here.

Curator talk: Saturday, 27 August at 1pm. Book online or on 8325 1750

The event unites four design precincts: Collingwood, Fitzroy, Melbourne CBD and Richmond, with multiple showrooms and pop-up spaces transformed by conceptual installations and product launches, international guests, topical industry seminars, emerging designer showcases, workshops, demonstrations, networking drinks and more.

The locations are connected by tram routes and free buses, creating choose-your-own design adventures for industry insiders and design lover.

These come together with Articolo’s refined custom fixtures, to create an effect that is simple, elegant and timeless.

Step Gently on this Earth and this Sky 2007 - 2012

         

 

This exhibition represents a collaborative project between The University of Melbourne’s Early Learning Centre and Philip Stokes Studio Glass and is open to the public until 5th May 2013.

Kindergarten teacher Suzana Zaper, who translates a personal fascination with glass into a medium of discovery and learning for her 3-5 year old students, and Philip Stokes, a glass artist who enjoys sharing this ancient craft with young children and incorporating their ideas into his art, lead this ongoing collaborative project.

Approximately 200 three-five year old children from the Early Learning Centre have participated in the project over the past six years and the exhibition reflects their journey of discovery through a unique glass collection inspired by their poetic imagination, vocabulary and drawings.

The project also forms part of the Early Learning Centre’s annual wider curriculum responding to The United Nations International Year themes, promoting care and concern for the environment through education. Step Gently on this Earth and this Sky takes us from “Antarctica, the icy land of secrets” to “our home, this muddy Yarra” and beyond. 

See Wagga Wagga Art Gallery for more information.

 On exhibition until the 5th of May 2013.
