On Clement Meadmore's mid-century design

UPCOMING

Join independent researcher and curator Jeromie Maver and artist/collector Peter Atkins in the Yarra Valley as they discuss the industrial design of Clement Meadmore.

Clement Meadmore is regarded as one of Australia’s most important artists of the twentieth century and is also widely acknowledged as a significant and pioneering figure within the history of Australian modernist design. Maver and Atkins will discuss Meadmore’s singular design language in depth, highlighting his remarkable ability to manipulate the most basic materials such as steel rod, cotton cord, sheet metal, canvas and thin plywood into functional, innovative and durable objects.

Presented as part of Melbourne Design Week 2024, in conjunction with TarraWarra’s current exhibition—The Industrial Design of Clement Meadmore: The Harris/Atkins Collection Presented as part of Melbourne Design Week 2024, in conjunction with TarraWarra’s current exhibition—this is an outstanding opportunity to hear intimate and expert insights into the Harris/Atkins Collection which, carefully built through tremendous dedication and meticulous research over the past 25 years, has played an instrumental part in affirming the importance of Meadmore’s design practice in the history of mid-century modernism.

The talk will conclude with a short Q&A with the audience, followed by refreshments courtesy of our sponsors. Exhibition entry is included in your ticket.
