Come-In: Interior Design as a Contemporary Art Medium in Germany

9 Apr 2008 -
17 May 2008

RMIT Gallery
Victoria, Australia


Curator: Renate Goldmann

The international touring exhibition showcases the work of 25 young German artists, who explore the intersection between fine art and applied design.

The works have been created under three main themes: Get Together assembles rooms and objects which invite people to communicate and interact or not; Coming Home focuses on human behaviour, social and psychological patterns; and Living Fiction offers visionary designs, experimental scenarios and settings.

The exhibition has been developed by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen and is supported by the Goethe-Institut Australia.

There will also be a curator talk with Renate Goldmann as she leads a tour of the exhibition and discusses individual works and artists.
