CONCRETE: Art Design Architecture

CONCRETE: art design architecture is a major exhibition exploring innovative ways that concrete is being used by artists, designers and architects in Australia in the 21st century.

Curated by JamFactory’s Margaret Hancock Davis (Senior Curator) and Brian Parkes (CEO), the exhibition includes 21 artists, designers and architects from across Australia and brings together products, projects and works of art that reflect many of the current preoccupations with concrete within contemporary art, design and architecture in Australia.

CONCRETE: art design architecture is supported by Visions of Australia funding through the Australian Government’s Department of Communications and Arts and the South Australian Government through the Department for Innovation and Skills. The Principal Sponsor for CONCRETE: art design architecture is Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia, the peak body for the cement, concrete and quarry industry in Australia.

JAMFACTORY WORKSHOP: CONCRETE CASTING
Wed 18 November, 5pm to 8pm | $30

In this workshop, South Australian artist Anna Horne will direct participants in making sculptures cast in concrete and plaster using moulds made out of unexpected everyday materials. Using the force of gravity to their advantage, participants will make objects that explore the materiality of concrete and visual concepts of light and heavy, soft and hard, familiar and strange. Workshop will include light refreshments.
