Tough Luck Exhibition by Katie Eraser and Emma Lipscombe,

Nobody said collaborations were easy, but teaming up with someone who lives over 3400 kilometres away presents unique challenges. Tough Luck is a joint effort from Melbourne-based artist Katie Eraser and Perth-based artist Emma Lipscombe, and brings together their distinct but complementary styles. Their upcoming exhibition features a range of paintings by each artist, and also a series of limited run textiles which the pair designed together. The exhibition is a great example of the way which social media platforms like Instagram can bring together likeminded artists and help foster creative relationships and friendships. Katie and Emma have overcome physical distance to create a truly collaborative and unique exhibition.

Pete Sullivan from Cox Architecture

Recently we caught up with Pete Sullivan from Cox Architecture, creators of the winning design for the $2 Billion development planned for Southbank by Beulah International. 
We asked Pete Sullivan a few quick questions to find out more about the design process and the building itself. 

Hope you like it! 

Competing with six other designs put together by collaborating teams of Australian and international architecture firms, Cox Architecture and Dutch firm UNStudio’s design Green Spine took first place. Their 350+ metre high Green Spine is an impressive cantilevered structure made up of two twisting towers with a geometric glass facade and green terracing.

We are thrilled to finally feature the amazingly talented young artist Hannah Nowlan. We first came across her work from her previous solo exhibition Myths, Moons and Mountains in 2017. Hannah’s current exhibition Cerberus is an exploration of her environment and landscape in her iconic, rich and evocative style. 

We hope you enjoy this Q&A and a selection of some of our favourite works from Cerberus. Make sure to check out the full exhibition which opens on the 16th of August at Modern Times in Collingwood.

Mini Living - INVERT

MINI LIVING - INVERT has officially commenced. The 14 models are currently on display in a
glasshouse on the site of the design brief in Melbourne’s CBD.


 The architects have embraced, challenged and explored the MINI LIVING - INVERT brief, which
was to create a home for a family of four on a six-by-ten-metre site. For example, panovscott’s
House of Houses design provides a home not only for a family, but constructs defined ecosystems that support specific plant and animal life.

A.BCH, Scott Bendedictine and MNDATORY

This week we’re taking a look back at CTF Curated Work Shop by the Council of Textile & Fashion which featured a live studio residency and collaboration between emerging Melbourne designers A.BCH, Scott Benedictine and MNDATORY.

I came across CTF Curated while passing through St. Collins Lane one morning, and I wanted to look into their story a bit more and discover what Curated Melbourne is doing to help showcase and support our emerging fashion designers. They invited me over to their popups and I had a chance to talk to Courtney Holm of A.BCH, Warren Harrison of Scott Benedictine and Brian Huynh of MNDATORY

I was lucky enough to sit down with Rone on the last day of the Omega Project in Alphington where he has collaborated with Carly Spooner and others to transform a derelict home into a public art installation as part of the YarraBend re-development. 

With more than 7000 visitors over nine days and coverage on local and international media, Rone has been amazed by the response to his work.
