Object’s 2015 vision.

A message from the Director, Steven Pozel.

Download Object’s 2015 Vision here.

In 2015, Object will celebrate a remarkable 50 years of programming and public engagement. This anniversary has played a significant role in considering what the organisations might look like at this milestone.

Our 2015 vision outlines a new institution. An institution of outreach, that fundamentally operates beyond the definition of a gallery or museum as we know it today. The creative sector in this decade is about smashing silos, breaking boundaries, and reimagining a definition of visual culture. Object’s vision strongly supports this transition and celebrates a new era for the creative industries in the 21st century.

Over the last decade, we’ve been witness to the international momentum surrounding the powerful and transformative impact of design. I believe that public engagement in design is one important way of developing our creative culture. We can use design to empower our audiences with new tools to build capacity in critical and creative thought that can flow into all aspects of people’s lives.

We have been going through a transformative process ourselves as we explore how to engage differently with our audiences. Technology and its rapid developments have been a significant motivation behind Object’s vision, and it is challenging us to create new and innovative ways for public engagement. It is enabling us to rethink exhibitions and public programs, and is fuelling us to reconsider how to best serve our audiences.
