Curated by award-winning Sydney designer Liane Rossler, TOTES is the second project to be launched this year in Carriageworks’ purpose-built space. TOTES features limited edition and specially commissioned bags, produced locally by Australian artists and designers including Pip & Pop, Marian Tubbs, Louise Tuckwell, Eager & Vane, Rittenhouse, Province, and Romance Was Born.

The concept for TOTES is simple, totally great bags designed by totally great artists. TOTES explores creative links between art and fashion, inviting a series of artists and designers to conceive a hand-made ‘tote’ bag for the project. Offering the chance to own an original item created by an Australian artist or designer, the limited edition bags are available exclusively at Carriageworks for between $55 and $350.

“This project showcases the diversity of approach by artists and designers when working with this medium: the simple bag. We are celebrating the talents of Australia designers and artists to creating beautiful bespoke pieces. By purchasing one of these TOTES you are able to carry a piece of original art around with you every day.” said Liane Rossler, Curator of TOTES.

TOTES reflects the Carriageworks mission: artist driven, ambitious, risk taking and unrelenting. The exhibition runs until 7 July 2013 and is part of the Carriageworks 2013 artistic program HERE AND NOW that will continue for their remainder of the year with new projects in late July and October 2013.
