Experimental Thinking/Design Practices

Finding Holes in Categorical Fences

Experimental Thinking/Design Practices at Griffith University Art Gallery, Queensland College of Art (QCA), explores several themes integral to how artists and designers develop research. It is the third in a series of exhibitions, the others of which included Feral Experimental: New Design Thinking at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Galleries from July to August 2014, and Experimental Practice: Provocations In and Out of Design at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University Design Hub in May 2015. The exhibitions aim to provoke debate about the purpose of design in a format that is modified for each location. These iterations of the exhibition include practitioners from the communities in which they were shown, and were developed with co-curators in each city—Laurene Vaughan and Brad Haylock in Melbourne, and Peter Hall and Beck Davis in Brisbane.
