Design Exhibitions at Brunswick Street Gallery



Timed to coincide with Melbourne Design Week, Brunswick Street Gallery is currently accepting expressions of interest for two upcoming design based exhibitions/showcases.

1. The Vessel

Humans have been utilising vessels for all of recorded history. Whether utilitarian or decorative, from vases to perfume bottles to bowls, the vessel is constantly evolving as design aesthetics change and technologies alter the ways we create them. Within this exhibition we will be showcasing the range of vessels being created today.

Applications open to any designer/artist/maker whose work/practice encompasses the vessel. Whether purely decorative or functional, utilising traditional materials or engaging new technologies.

2. Wearable Art

What we wear affects how we are perceived by those around us, which is reflected in the array of wearable design objects being created throughout Australia. Designers and makers are pushing the boundaries of objects to adorn the body.

The only requirement for this exhibition is that the objects must be wearable, but do not have to be practical.


Applications now open: Applications are now open for designers/artists/makers for The Vessel, and Wearable Art.
