Obsessed: Compelled to Make tour & activity
ADC on Tour: An Australian Design Centre national touring exhibition

Obsessed: Compelled to make presents the work of 14 artists from across Australia, delving beyond the finished object, beyond the personality of the maker, into the fundamental conceptual framework of their creations. We look at the complexities of their materials and processes, the realities of their day-to-day studio routine and unravel what compels each maker to create over the course of their personal career – Why this technique or material? Why that concept? How does the mind of a maker work?

Bring your students for a guided tour & activity session allowing them to delve deeper into the works and content of this highly engaging exhibition.

Dates: Week of 7th December
Times: 1.5hr duration
Cost: Free
Age: Year 5 to 12
