What compels a maker to create? Why this technique or material? Why that concept? How does the mind of a maker work? Australian Design Centre presents its major touring exhibition for the year, Obsessed: Compelled to make. These are the stories of 14 Australian artists – stories that are at the same time unique and yet contain the frustrations and highpoints of a life of creative work that all of us can relate to, whether we are a professional artist, designer, craftsperson or hobbyist.
Artists include: Gabriella Bisetto, Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Honor Freeman, Jon Goulder, Kath Inglis, Laura McCusker, Elliat Rich and James B Young (Elbowrkshp), Kate Rohde, Oliver Smith, Vipoo Srivilasa, Tjunkaya Tapaya, Louise Weaver, Liz Williamson.
