Melbourne Fringe’s iconic, avant-garde furniture exhibition has become Design Fringe – a new exhibition celebrating Melbourne’s extraordinary independent designers as well as the ground-breaking, bizarre and impractical works they produce. This year’s event has the theme of “home”, acknowledging that our own dwellings often provide the inspiration for exceptional design.
Leading First Nations multi-disciplinary creative Nicole Monks has been awarded Design Fringe’s First Nation Commission. Nicole will realise her work birli nganmanha (eating together) that will form the centrepiece of the exhibition.
The show will operate for an extended period of three months at its new home at Linden New Art, plus an exciting curated collection at the Victorian Pride Centre during the Melbourne Fringe Festival.
