Mutual Exchange is a series of new works by James Makin Gallery artists and invited designers. Following the theme of Melbourne Design Week, the exhibition explores the outcomes of collaboration and collusion across perceived divisions of art and design. To create works for the exhibition, four artists have been paired with invited design professionals: Belem Lett (artist) x Dale Hardiman (designer), Sally Walk x Harley Vincent (architect), Antonia Perricone-Mrljak (artist) x Natalie Turnbull (art director), Robert Malherbe x Tristan Wong (architect). Artists and designers will each create a new work that responds to an aspect of their partner’s practice. Works created for Mutual Exchange will act as both portrait and self portrait, reflecting the creative identities of both maker and subject.
