Future Nature

In partnership with the Australian Museum, Future Nature explores possible futures posed by artists, designers and architects inspired by biology and the natural world.

From 27 August to 16 October at the Australian Design Centre, Future Nature will map the places where art, science, and design collide.

Inspired by the Australian Museum’s living collection, Future Nature is an exploration of the roots of scientific curiosity, collection, and exploration – taking things apart, examining them, and reforming them anew through scientific enquiry.

Instead of displaying curious objects to inspire wonder, the process of inspiration is what’s on display – acts of creativity from 10 selected artists that use the natural world to increase our understanding of the world and our place within it.

Each of the 10 exhibiting artists will have their work displayed in their own custom-designed display – a modern reimagining of the Cabinet of Curiosity. Visitors are encouraged to explore each Cabinet, opening shutters and rummaging through drawers, to explore the personal  ‘collection’ assembled by each of the designers.

In the lead up to Future Nature, two designers-in-residence working and creating in the new Australian Design Centre from May 26. Designers and illustrators Egg Picnic and emerging architect Justin Cawley are exposing their creative process as they design for the exhibition.

Bite Time

Celebrating the release of a brand new ‘superzine’, “Bitetime” is a selection of artworks, drawings, random travels and experiences, by Ian Mutch. The exhibition explores beauty through nature and narrative, capturing snippets of the artist’s life. From his childhood in Africa, travels through Asia and Japan, to the surrounds of his coastal studio in south-west Australia, these artworks immerse the viewer into a detailed view on the world. “Bitetime” is both an exhibition and a mini journal – a limited edition art booklet, neatly packaged with a build-yourself bitetime character and vinyl sticker. Ian Mutch is no stranger to print. As co-founder of Kingbrown Magazine, he continues to drive the magazine’s design and packaging, experimenting with hand crafted layouts, embellishments and inserts.

Opening September 3, from 6-9pm at the Just Another Project Space – 2A/127 Greville Street, Prahran (entry off Gratten Street).
