Material Culture Past Event

Presented by Marsha Golemac

This exhibition is a dedication to the ongoing evolution of ‘material culture’ – an attempt to expand on conversations surrounding why and how things are made, and what social, functional, or symbolic needs they satisfy. We’re often presented with competing ideas of old versus new, as if there is not value in both. We see it in all facets of our everyday lives. But, what if we did away with that distinction? This exhibition offers a space for creatives, and guests alike, to imagine a world where yesterday’s ideologies and tomorrow’s innovations can coexist. Featuring the work of sixteen designers, makers and artists, the exhibition encourages participants to embrace traditional and ultra-modern techniques in object design. Each participant has created an object using a natural or cultural resource with a focus on tactility and materiality. Purposeful in nature, as defined by the participant, the object is a representation of the world they want to live in.
