Women In Design celebrates the contribution Melbourne women make to our built environment.
11 February – 22 February
Venue: fortyfivedownstairs – 45 Flinders Ln, Melbourne
Presented by the Design Institute of Australia Victoria Tasmania Branch, the exhibition profiles creative leaders from the disciplines of Architecture, Furniture Design, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Visual Art, Textile Design and Inter-disciplinary Design.
The fifteen contributing designers – Celina Clarke, Debbie Ryan, Helen Kontouris, Helen Watts, Jenny Underwood, Kerstin Thompson, Kirsten Bauer, Leah Heiss, Leanne Zilka, Michaela Webb, Penelope Lee, Rae Ganim, Simone LeAmon, Sue Carr and Susan Hewitt – will delve into their catalogue of work to feature projects which tell the story of their careers.
Visitors will gain an insight into the design and development process through the presentation of plans, renderings and photographs of built projects. Scale models will sit alongside textiles, homewares, furniture, lighting and videos of projects in development.
The exhibition will feature floor talks by participating designers and a historical component in support of the tradition of women’s contribution to our built environment. [via: design.org.au]
