One Road: Canning Stock Route Project app

While Yiwarra Kuju has been touring the nation, the Canning Stock Route Project team has been busy converting the exhibition’s One Road multimedia interactive into an Application for iOS and web with the support of Lotterywest and the Australian Government’s T-QUAL Grants.

The One Road: Canning Stock Route Project app retains the rich interactive experience of the One Road exhibition display but transports users to the stock route through their own personal devices, bringing the cultural, artistic, and social components of the desert alive.

Awkward Beauty Tour to Victoria

After its successful launch in October 2011 at the Midland Atelier Pattern Shop, the School of Art Gallery at Australian National University invited FORM to tour the exhibition in September 2012 as part of the Fashionably Early project in Canberra. Awkward Beauty is now touring to c3 Contemporary Art Space in Abbotsford, Victoria from June 19 to July 17, 2013.

Awkward Beauty is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Britton, Perth garment designer Justine McKnight and Perth photographer Michelle Taylor. The exhibition takes the complex notion of ‘beauty’ and spins a multi-layered, multi-material narrative around this. Each artist has created a body of 10 works (jewellery, garments, photography) as a direct response to the work created by the others in a process of exchange, reaction, and interpretation.

Celebrating the first five years of Midland Atelier

Paper, Cotton, Leather, Flowers, Wood will showcase Midland Atelier as a destination for creative exchange and development via site-specific works by some of Western Australia’s most prominent contemporary artists within the Workshops’ most impressive spaces. Inspired by the first five traditional anniversary gifts, these installations will showcase works in each medium by iconic Western Australian artists drawing inspiration from the Workshops’ idiosyncratic industrial-gothic charm, including Susan Flavell’s cardboard sculptures (Paper), Nalda Searles’ textiles works (Cotton), Tanija and Graham Carr’s leather objects (Leather), Eva Fernandez’s installations and photographs (Flowers) and the Pattern Shop studio designers’ works-in-progress and design explorations (Wood).

Midland Atelier 2008-2013 - Fifth anniversary exhibition programme

FORM is delighted to present Midland Atelier 2008-2013, a program of exhibitions and events celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Midland Atelier and its unique position in Australia’s design landscape.

In 2008 the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority decided to expand the existing woodworking facilities at the historic Midland Railway Workshops, and collaborated with FORM to restructure the format of the site’s former Pattern Shop into a unique studio collective, driven by a desire to support the practices of the state’s designer-makers.

Complimented by a residency program for local and international creatives from multiple disciplines, the Pattern Shop became the heart of the Midland Atelier, a unique space for creative development and exchange through which innovation and collaboration can be fostered within the atmospheric context of one of Western Australia’s architectural treasures.
