From architecture and design to art, craft and jewellery, a new exhibition at Artisan, Queensland’s centre for craft and design, will explore the diversity and potential of concrete.

The exhibition curated by Richard Stride is part of a series which will investigate materials.

Concrete has a rich history and has enabled architects and designers to create a range of forms in urbanized environments.

The artists featured in this exhibition include Karl De Waal, Michael Phillips, Emma Bugg, Angela Tiatia, Tom Borgas, Ubikubi and PopConcrete. Their works represent a diverse range of creative fields and modes of production, from the handmade to the industrially produced.

Material #01: Concrete also promises to “break moulds of expectation that we often unknowingly hold for concrete.”

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

When: 28 March – 3 June 2017
Where: Artisan, 381 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley
Cost: Free, no bookings required
