Delmar Gallery Exhibition

Delmar Gallery’s new exhibition, ‘Biomateriality’, opens this Saturday at 3pm. Join us for the opening celebration from 3 to 5pm. Preview the exhibition, listen to talks by three of the exhibiting designers, and enjoy some light refreshments.

‘Biomateriality’ brings together researchers, designers and artists who are pioneering biomaterials in Australia, embracing principles of regenerative design and cyclical economies.

Joining a growing global movement, their research includes developing new materials such as seaweed-based polymers for 3D printing, biofoams and mycelium applications in the construction, packaging, design and textile industries.

This exhibition goes behind their studio and lab doors and reveals this research in progress, including material experiments, speculative design, prototypes and samples. It will also include art installations that explore the new aesthetics and philosophical underpinnings of this emerging field of design.
