Awards in Design 2010

17 November

veski is proud to support three key design initiatives in 2010:

veski will fund a submission received from Monash University to support:

Automotive Design & Research in Design - a two-week visit by Monash Alumnus Max Wolff

As a veski/Monash funded visiting designer, Max Wolff [Exterior Design Director for Cadillac (General Motors) in the USA] will talk about his experiences in automotive design, about research in design and about how GM designers are responding to challenges posed by global warming and changes in traditional markets and about how design influences consumer perception and demand.

In addition to engagement with the Facultys transport researchers, Max will undertake various workshops with undergraduate design students and deliver a public lecture in a central Melbourne location for the design and broader community.

veski will also support two submissions from RMIT University to fund:

Breed Out 2011- Lucy McRae’s solo show at Mars Gallery in Melbourne

Breed Out is an extreme form of human amalgamation; organic mutations of humans breeding with machine, animal and plant. There will be a solo show at Mars Gallery in Melbourne, where Lucy McRae will exhibit a collection of photographs, moving image and objects that re-define the human silhouette.

Breed Out is an alternate, low-tech vision on human amalgamation where common materials are draped on the body to create imagery that may often look grotesquely beautiful. This provocative showcase of imagery relies on instinct, an extra ordinary exhibition that remains powerful, primal and uniquely Lucy McRae.

In addition to her solo show, veski will fund a series of workshops and lectures hosted by Lucy, spanning the architecture, fashion, science and academic worlds to provoke, inspire, impart knowledge and outline the themes associated with Breed Out.

X_FieldTravelling Exhibition(s) and Catalogue - Beijing, Seoul, Taipei & Melbourne

X_Field is a collaborative group of practitioners who work across the disciplines of art, architecture, landscape architecture, urban and interior design. The X_Field Exhibition(s) aims to define an emergent trend to re-engage with the ability of the design process to make life in our cities better. The exhibition(s) explore practices that are socially inclusive rather than exclusive, with particular focus on interdisciplinary practices. They work from the 'bottom' up to focus on people, everyday life and the city as lived, rather that built.

veski will fund new work of six eminent Victorian (X_Field) practitioners, Charles Anderson, Richard Black, Mel Dodd, Sand Helsel, Andrea Mina, and SueAnne Ware in prestigious galleries in Beijing, Seoul and Taipei, alongside works from like-minded cross-disciplinary practitioners in the respective cities. The exhibition will commence in Seoul mid Feb-March 2011 then travel to Beijing in April 2011, Taipei in September 2011 before arriving to Melbourne in late 2011 early 2012.
