Detail and manner investigates the work of architecture practice Vokes and Peters, renowned for its unique exploration of the Queensland house and its aesthetic of austerity. Through a focus on their design of furniture and objects, which often accompany their architectural projects, Detail and manner will explore the reciprocal relationships between architecture and design practices working from the minute to the macro. This multi-faceted exhibition will showcase new and existing objects, including works produced collaboratively with designers and craftspeople, within an innovative installation based approach to exploring architectural practice.

Exhibitions continues to 9 April 2016.

This event is part of the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum, an initiative of Architecture Media and the State Library of Queensland.

Detail and manner is proudly sponsored by: AWS Architectural Windows Systems, PGH Bricks & Pavers, Dulux, Mast, Master Engraving & Ben Campbell Constructions.

Also launching:

Catherine Large | Strange objects
Small Object Space (SOS)

Jewellery and small object artist Catherine Large draws on her experience of the nature of objects to inform this exhibition. Preferring materials with a former life, she works predominantly with items inherited or collected from places lived or travelled to, examining them and finding considered new uses and configurations for them. The transformation of objects of opaque and mysterious origins in Large’s work becomes a contemplative process of considering and imagining their histories.

Strange objects launches the new Small Object Space (SOS), at artisan presented in partnership with Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art (QCA). SOS will feature a program of exhibitions in 2016 showcasing QCA’s best small object works from student, staff and alumni.

Virginia Jones and Francesca Travers | Silent spring
Ivory St Window Space

This exhibition, presented in partnership with Brisbane City Council, showcases the work of renowned ceramist Virginia Jones and emerging ceramist Francesca Travers created through the Council’s Ageless Creative Enterprise Mentoring Project. This peer-to-peer intergenerational project aims is to match requests from emerging practitioners with the skills of a mentor who can provide the training and assistance needed. Through this exchange, a mentee’s skill base can be extended and individuals have the opportunity to develop a partnership that could create an arts-related business or practice.

Proudly supported by Brisbane City Council.
