WOOD: art design architecture

14 February – 6 April 2014

WOOD represents a cross-section of current creative practices, modes of thinking and relationships to this fundamental material and combines furniture and functional objects, sculptural works (including wood carving by Indigenous artists), interiors and architectural work.

Co-curated by Brian Parkes and Elliat Rich, the exhibition looks at the use of wood through three lenses; place and identity, sustainability and ecology, craftsmanship and technology. While the exhibition focuses on Australian works and projects, the publication and associated events position those works in a dynamic international context.

WOOD: art design architecture is a JamFactory and Botanic Gardens of Adelaide touring exhibition.

WOOD: art design architecture is supported by the Commonwealth Government’s Contemporary Touring Initiative and is principally sponsored by Wood. Naturally Better.
