CONCRETE: art design architecture

31 January - 18 March 2020

This exhibition explores innovative ways that concrete is being used by artists, designers and architects in Australia in the 21st Century. Produced by our partners at Adelaide‚Äôs JamFactory, the exhibition includes 21 artists, designers and architects from across Australia reflecting on current preoccupations with concrete as a contemporary material. 

Object Space

31 January - 18 March 2020

Object Space is a window gallery located in the window of the ADC Offices on William Street in Darlinghurst. On display from 31 January to 18 March 2020 is the exhibition Sweet Spot by Julie Paterson.

Sweet Spot is a collection of stencil symbols and the marks that they make. In this work Julie Paterson cross pollinates her multidimensional practice as a designer, painter and printmaker. The collection of symbols, originally part of landscape paintings, create a library of shapes that leap from the canvas.
