This year, all entries must respond to the theme of Home
The home is a primary space for design practice. From architecture and furniture to fabric and fixtures; from the smallest functional items used every day, to the most lavish, decorative or occasional luxuries. Homes often provide the inspiration and context for great design.
A home is somewhere that we can find belonging, acceptance, protection and safety. This can be grounded on geographical location or formed by the presence of loved ones and family. Our home can anchor our identity and help us remember who we are. We create homes of all kinds with care and creativity, in a way that embodies our spiritual and emotional needs and values.
This year’s exhibition will be displayed at Linden New Art, a heritage listed building in St Kilda. The gallery is located on the lands of the Yalukit Willam Clan of the Boon Wurrung people.
Built in 1871 the Linden mansion was the home of the Michaelis family and their fourteen children, until 1957 when it was sold and became a private hotel. Linden’s domestically scaled gallery spaces and Victorian architecture offer a unique space to which artists can respond. The history of the Linden building, as a former family home may also thematically inform proposed work(s).
