Gate 13, Royal Parade
The Grainger Museum is excited to announce a special, two-day only exhibition pop-up event in collaboration with CLINKproject6 and the Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery and Object Biennial, Radiant Pavilion.
The CLINKproject6 output has been pop-up or intervention-flavoured jewellery and textile exhibits in Auckland locations. Key driving aspects developed by the group have been Collaborative Making, Public Interaction and Collective Publication.
This year the CLINKproject team will cross the Tasman to Melbourne and align their project with the Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery and Object Biennial Radiant Pavilion. CLINKproject6 will be located within the galleries here at the Grainger Museum.
Each participant of CLINKproject6 selected an item from the Grainger Museum collection to act as a stimulus for a responding jewellery or textile work. The finished, responsive pieces will then be placed back within the permanent exhibits here at the Grainger Museum, making them publicly available to visitors in the final days of the Radiant Pavilion event.
Visit the Grainger Museum during September 12, 13 & 15 to view the work of CLINKproject6.
For the last five years students and staff from Hungry Creek School of Art & Craft and Dunedin School of Art (Otago Polytechnic). have worked collaboratively under the title CLINKproject. The collective includes students from undergraduate to post-graduate level, as well as staff and academics. CLINKproject aims to work non-hierarchically.
