domesticMATTERS

Curated by Brian Kennedy and Peter Ting


domesticMATTERS, Contemporary Applied Arts exhibition for London Design Festival 2012, will transform the gallery into the imagined home of a collector of Modernist furniture and 21st Century craft. Curators, Brian Kennedy and Peter Ting, revisit the parallels between the basic tenets of modernist design and the
concerns and approaches underpinning the work of some of our finest contemporary British craft makers.

Important pieces of Modernist furniture from the Rocket Gallery collection will act as the backdrop for an installation that will showcase an inspirational selection of functional works from CAA members.

domesticMATTERS addresses the link between contemporary craft makers and some of the most important design and manufacturing companies supporting contemporary British design. It is an exhibition with a mission; the ultimate goal is to stimulate and develop interaction between uniquely skilled designer makers, potential producers and retailers.
