This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2020, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.

'Quarto' by Adelaide-based artist Luca Lettieri will exhibit as part of 'Transcendence' at Modern Times Gallery from March 12 - 22.

Transcendence explores how our lives are shaped and influenced beyond the physical by the furniture and objects we surround ourselves with. It is an expansion on the central theme for Melbourne Design Week – ‘How Can Design Shape Life?’

New work by Ebony Heidenreich, Luca Lettieri, James Howe, Henry Wilson, Steelotto, Coco Flip, Ebony Russell, Connie Augoustinos, Ella Bendrups, Kerryn Levy, Carol Crawford, Kenny Yong-soo Son and Bettina Willner-Browne spans furniture, lighting and ceramics with approaches that vary from strict design disciplines to more expressive fine art processes. ‘Art’ is broadly believed to have transcendent qualities – allowing us to access something outside of ourselves or feel something that words can’t fully capture – Transcendence contends that ‘design’ also has this capability.
