Melbourne Fringe Festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary and is encouraging all artists to submit work that represents the essence of Fringe Furniture.
Fringe Furniture is an exhibition of furniture, homewares, wearable objects, lighting and ephemeral works. It was curated by artist and designer Bruce Filley in 1986 due to the lack of opportunities for experimental designers and makers to exhibit their work in mid 1980s Melbourne.
Artists now have the opportunity to create work that envelops the creative and experimental roots of Fringe Furniture, which means employing elements of the past in order to imagine and produce the future of design.
Applications are open from Monday May 30 and close on Monday June 27. You can apply via the festival’s website.
