Curator Talk at 7pm
Jemima Burrill has curated four design exhibitions at NOW Gallery including the current show by Emmanuelle Moureaux, The Mouse and his Child by Studio Morrison and The People’s Brick Company by Something and Sons.
Jemima sees these exhibitions as an opportunity for designers to have a space to think outside of the box, to come up with an interactive installation which draws in communities to do something unusual within the gallery. The first exhibition in 2016 gave everyone the chance to make a brick, be involved in the process of casting the brick and then firing it, in a wood fired kiln. This sense of hands on involvement is key to the NOW Gallery exhibits.
Jemima will talk about how she worked on the latest installation with Emmanuelle Moureaux, and how the 168 000 numbers were shipped from Japan and installed in the gallery. The process took 14 days and she will talk through this process.
Jemima is interested in how design becomes art and how the boundaries are firmly blurred with designers taking the role of artists and artist are taking the chance to design.
This evening will give guests the opportunity to visit NOW Gallery after hours, and enjoy a drink.
