Design revisited: Kirstie Rea | DESIGN Canberra 2020

Festivals and Celebrations

23 Nov 2020 Once Only Event

DESIGN Canberra’s new Design Revisited event series will be a unique opportunity to celebrate design history, design education and design excellence in a city of design.

Join DESIGN Canberra Designer-in-Residence, and internationally acclaimed glass maker, Kirstie Rea as she revisits some of her most important works and discusses how care shapes her practice. With a career as an independent maker spanning more than 30 years, Kirstie’s practice has been recognized at both a national and international level, featuring in numerous solo and group shows, a recent survey exhibition and esteemed public and private collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

Craft ACT CEO and Artistic Director Rachael Coghlan said, “Kirstie embodies the concept of ‘care’ in everything she does; not only in the care she takes in the craftmanship of her work and her exploration of ideas and techniques in glass but also more broadly in her connection with the Australian natural landscape and her generous spirit and contribution to community. We are thrilled to be able to celebrate Kirstie’s phenomenal contribution to the development of Australian glass within the international arena and welcome her as DESIGN Canberra’s 2020 designer-in-residence.”
