SUBMISSIONS CLOSED: Art Aviso- Exhibition 4.0 Pause Button
5 June, 2020
Posted by: Art Aviso News
INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE
'Pause Button' was originally scheduled to be exhibited in May 2020 but due to COVID-19 we have rescheduled until December 2020.
The good news is that we are re-opening submissions for our Art Aviso subscribers who would like to take part ,and extending the deadline until November for existing participants.
This exhibition asks us to take some time, pause, and allow ourselves the time to play, experiment and enjoy art making that may be outside of our usual art practice. Pause Button uses a curated series of discarded buttons as the inspiration to create a circular or spherical artwork.
Buttons were used as decorative ornaments long before they became synthetic everyday clothing fasteners, connecting one piece of material to another. Prior to the more common (usually) plastic buttons of today became the norm, buttons were crafted from sea shells, bone, ivory, wood, leather, porcelain or metal, they were hand made and could be covered in precious silks and linens or hiding a secret compartment for contraband. Buttons were hand-painted, enameled, stitched, crocheted, carved or cast.
Are buttons small objects of purpose, beauty and significance or just pieces of plastic?
Join us to pause, and connect at The Old Auction House Gallery in Kyneton, Victoria for Art Aviso’s first regional exhibition event.
Note: Exhibition unsuitable for those suffering from Koumpounophobia (Phobia of Buttons)
Art Aviso in collaboration with The Old Auction House Kyneton would like to invite Art Aviso Artist subscribers located in Australia (new subscribers welcome) to be part of Art Aviso event 4.0 (Pause Button). Regional Artists strongly encouraged to participate.
