Openings and launches...

Tomorrow evening will be the opening night of three very important occasions: it will be the launch of our first two exhibitions of the year as well as the launch of Notions of Space, a publication jointly produced by Craft Victoria and the School of Architecture and Design, RMIT University. What a way to kick off 2009!

In galleries 1 & 2 will be the work of jeweller Lisa Walker. Curated by Damien Skinner, the exhibition entitled Unwearable will consist of work completed by Lisa over the past fifteen years. Monumental indeed!

Complementary to Lisa's Unwearable exhibition are the highly wearable, and not to mention visually edible, objects by Melinda Young in gallery 3. Take a Ball of Thread... saw Melinda use an industrial spool of cotton candy pink thread to create a multitude of fantastic objects under a series of limitations: the product must be wearable and the project must end when the thread runs out.

In addition to these two exhibitions, tomorrow will also be the official launch of the Notions of Space publication. It follows on from RMIT's School of Architecture and Design exhibition last year entitled Urban Interior Occupation as well as the Notions of Space exhibition. Like the best things in life, copies of this excellent journal are free and hard-copies are available at Craft Victoria. Alternatively, you can also access the publication in PDF form by clicking here.
