oh i am soooo excited to announce that my work will be featured at the 3rd Modern Times Pop-Up Show, along with some artists that I REALLY really REALLY admire! This time round, the show will be housed at the old Lure building on Smith Street in Collingwood. check out the website here.
'Modern Times Pop-Up Shop #3 will be housing itself in a space that needs to be seen to be believed. A huge multi level space with soaring ceilings, in Smith St, Collingwood, will be filled with Modern Times’ signature mix of mid-century furniture from Denmark combined with contemporary Australian art and design.
Husband and wife duo, Amy and Joel Malin, have cast the net even further afield this time, to source contemporary art and design from all over Australia including works on paper, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, glass and handmade leather accessories. The total number of artists involved this time is around fifty. “It’s a long way from the seven or eight we had at the first Modern Times Pop-Up Shop” Joel recalls.
Original art features on the walls at Modern Times. “The selection of work represents a visual variety but they all have a place amongst the mid-century\modernist aesthetic“, says Amy. Works include meticulous graphic compositions in pastel by Julian Martin, tapestries by Tim Gresham, photo media collages by Liesl Pfeffer and striking neon screenprints by Kate Banazi.
Amy and Joel arrange the space in a way that feels homely and inviting. “We encourage our customers to sit on the sofas and take in the pieces and the space, there are so many lovely things and we like to make it feel like a great big living space”
Modern Times Pop-Up Shop 3 opens April 21st. Launch eve, Friday April 20th 6-8pm'
