Side Project, hosted by The Stables, is an exciting new exhibition and retail pop-up showcasing the work of some of Australia’s most innovative independent designers and artists.
Today marks the launch of this new breed of design event in Sydney – encapsulating the best elements of a gallery exhibition, a retail space and a trade-show into the one format. Side Project will run during Sydney InDesign, but won’t be just a trade-to-trade event. Taking over the entire ground floor of The Stables, it will be open to all sectors of the creative community.
The exhibition features renowned Australian export (LA based) artist Jonathan Zawada, the inventive designs of Blakebrough + King, ceramics house Porcelain Bear, Sydney based design duo Page Thirty Three and many more.
The work exhibited consists largely of one-off or short run pieces, most of which have been crafted specifically for this event. Products include printed and hand-painted artworks, sculptural furniture, functional objects, magazines, crockery, textiles and more. The common theme between all participants is a thirst for exploration within their respective fields and a tone of voice that is conceptual, modern and above all experimental.
Side Project is a forum for designers, created by designers. For more information.
