Mis-Design Artist’s Forum

Mis-Design Artist’s Forum Guest curator Dr Grace McQuilten will be joined by local artists Flatland OK, Pacific Women’s Weaving Circle and Slow Art Collective for a discussion about their projects, their collaborations and their ideas. These artists are interested in challenging the “design” of contemporary art and the possibility of critique in contemporary consumer culture. They all employ artistic strategies which maintain a tension between art and contemporary architecture, fashion and interior design, focusing their production on issues of sustainability, human agency and social impact.
