What's on

Porosity Kabari

5 April – 23 May

Made from materials and craftsmanship sourced solely from the ‘Chor Bazaar’ (thieves market) and ‘Kabari Bazaars’ (junk markets) in Mumbai, India, the works in this exhibition are the result of an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, collaborative project by Australian object designer Trent Jansen, artist/architect Richard Goodwin and Indian design thinker Ishan Khosla.

Interpretations V: Paper (cellulose)

5 April - 23 May

Interpretations V explores the material limits of paper (cellulose) – a challenging but incredibly rich material. Each designer has cut, folded, formed, stitched, moulded (as pulp) or laminated paper, transforming an everyday, inexpensive, two-dimensional material into a three-dimensional work of experimental design.

Object Space

Object Space is a window gallery located in the window of the ADC Offices on William Street in Darlinghurst. On display 5 April - 23 May, is the exhibition En Vitrine (In the Front Window) by textile artist, Vita Cochran.
