Blue is a colour loaded with meaning. It is rich in social, cultural, political and psychological significance and can symbolize a diverse range of human emotions.

Curated by Kylie Johnston, Object’s Gallery & Retail Manager and Annette Mauer, Object’s Learning Coordinator, Blue is an exhibition of work by nine contemporary Australian makers. This group of artists, craftspeople and designers were invited to create a body of work or installation in response to familiar ‘blue’ phrases. Expressions such as ‘into the blue’, ‘the moody blues’ and ‘something borrowed, something blue’ have been paired with practitioners who, through a range of mediums, will interpret these narratives.

Part of Sydney Design Festival 2010, presented by the Powerhouse Museum.

Object: Australian Centre for Craft and Design is supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments. Object is assisted by the New South Wales Government - Arts NSW, and the Australian government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
