About the event

The actions of play, touch, assembly and reassembly are integral to design thinking and are at the centre of works in Our Kind of Playground. Join Our Kind of Playground curator, Kellee Uhr, in conversation with exhibiting artists, Simon Degroot and Lincoln Austin about the role of experimentation and play in their creative practices.

Stick around after the conversation to explore the exhibition and interact with form and space through the actions of assembly and reassembly.


About the exhibition

The connections between space, touch, play and making are celebrated in Our Kind of Playground. Through a collection of interactive works and ‘play spaces’, this exhibition encourages you to touch, reassemble and understand through the action of play. Drawing the visitor to physically engage with exploring material and design thinking, Our Kind of Playground reaffirms Artisan’s thoughts on the universality of craft and design. Our Kind of Playground launches Artisan’s 2017 program of exhibitions and public programs.

Curated by Kellee Uhr
