Best in Show is Objectspace’s annual graduate exhibition, showcasing a selection of outstanding work in the fields of Applied Arts and Design. Now in its ninth year, Best in Show 2013 functions as a platform for students stepping into the professional arena, while also providing an opportunity for the public to view a range of the latest exciting work to emerge from tertiary organisations.
The selection for 2013 focuses on 21 students from the Auckland region. Representing the fields of ceramics, fashion, graphic design, jewellery, product design, and textiles, a range of ideas have been addressed: individual and local identity, mobility and health, impermanence, and the relationship between traditional and innovative technologies. Across these various disciplines, the students have created works, which are characterised by innovation, command of a medium or process, and strong visual impact.
The works in this exhibition are inspirational and testament to the talent of their makers. There is an opportunity to meet some of the students who will discuss their work on Saturday 2 February 11am.
Best in Show 2011 features graduates from: Auckland University of Technology (Te Wānanga Aronui o Tāmaki Tāmaki Makaurau), Hungry Creek Art and Craft School, Massey University (Te Kunenga ki Pūrehuroa), Unitec (Te Whare Wānanga o Wairaka), Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design
