"TEN10 : ANNIVERSARY OBJECTS - Installations and Objects by Architects, Interior Architects and Industrial Designers"
2001-03-08 until 2001-04-07
University of South Australia, Art Museum
Adelaide, SA, AU Australia

Experimental architecture and design exhibitionThe University of South Australia Art Museum launches its 2001 exhibitions program on Thursday, 8 March with the architecture and design exhibition TEN10: anniversary objects, undertaken in collaboration with the Louis Laybourne Smith School of Architecture and Design.2001 is the tenth anniversary year of the University of South Australia and, to celebrate this, the Art Museum has invited selected graduates of the School architects, interior architects and industrial designers of achievement to reflect on their practice of the past decade by developing speculative installations and objects. The resulting exhibition is a decidedly forward-looking body of experimental anniversary objects, which use only white or aluminium coloured materials for their execution.

It has been suggested that the nurturing of architectural and design creativity is a mission of compelling community urgency, particularly in this climatically harsh Australian state where the necessity for environmentally sensitive development is more acutely observable than elsewhere in our country. A project of this kind exemplifies a role which the University can usefully play for South Australian architecture and design professionals, facilitating links and promoting discourse on ideas in contemporary practice. And this different exhibition curated by Rachel Hurst and Gini Lee with Erica Green provides South Australian audiences an opportunity to view and experience these ideas and objects (described by Hurst, in the exceptional catalogue, as a series of loops, dialogues and digressions between past events and present speculations) from some of the regions most innovative and experimental young architects and designers.

In July 2001, the Art Museum will present a second project celebrating the achievements of the University since its establishment in 1991, and those of its antecedent institutions. Orbit will consider the historical and contemporary success of one of Australias foremost and oldest art schools, the South Australian School of Art.
