Exhibitions at Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre

Crafting Waste
Niklavs Rubenis
Through practice-led research, local designer/maker Niklavs Rubenis addresses contemporary critical concerns around design, consumption, material culture and waste. This innovative exhibition features propositional and prototype furniture and lighting crafted from de-valued resources. This exhibition is proudly supported by Rolfe Classic BMW.

Aesthetics in the Time of Emergency
Sarah Field, Jennifer Ashley King, Jasmine Targett, Nadia Mercuri and Bethany Wheeler
Primarily glass makers, each artist explores an idea surrounding a current 'state of emergency' that impacts the individual and society collectively such as nuclear disasters and climate change issues. By using combinations of craft, images and installations they bring these concerns to light.
