Derek Sullivan: Poster Drawings Cross of Empire

Monday, October 22, 2007 - 4:00am to Saturday, November 3, 2007 - 4:00am

For his second exhibition at Jessica Bradley Art + Projects, Derek Sullivan will show a new series of large drawing and fabric pieces. In this series of coloured pencil and gouache drawings Sullivan adopts the poster idiom as a means of accommodating contradictory and changing meanings, as well as minor epiphanies and ephemeral references. In his new laser cut fabric pieces Sullivan mashes up well-known phrases into collapsible web-like sculptures.
For the installation of this exhibition Sullivan will pierce the architecture to create an unbroken row of works claiming the entire west wall of the gallery.

Botanica Tinctoria - Creating a Sustainable Materials Collection

Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

In this lecture, Rachel MacHenry will discuss how she has researched and developed a line of naturally dyed materials made from organic cotton and silk. The materials are produced in a closed loop system, with all waste materials going back into the production of the next generation of dye plants. The initiative works across areas as diverse as traditional agriculture, fair trade and contemporary design. Bringing together current ideas about environmentalism, contemporary scientific research and information gathered from the historical record, the project highlights the best of new and old methodologies in the creation of a range of contemporary design products. Rachel MacHenry is a textile designer and educator whose practice focuses on sustainability issues and artisan production.
