A View from Where I Was Sleeping presents a selection of collaborative art and design works from the 1950s to the present by local and international artists. The title is taken from a poem of the same name by Gregory O’Brien, which can be seen in the exhibition wrapped around a ceramic vase by artist Noel McKenna.

Often working across surprisingly different artistic disciplines, the exhibition includes graphic designers, glass artists, jewellers, writers, sculptors, furniture designers, ceramicists, rug makers, painters, typographers, and multi-media interdisciplinary artists.

Each work is the outcome of a particular exchange of ideas and is consequently charged with a certain kind of intimacy. These collaborations are imbued with the history of their own making, and those personal relationships that shaped them.

Other artists in the show include Raewyn Atkinson, Catherine Griffiths, Kate Woods, Jenny Bornholdt, Lucie Rie, Karl Fritsch, Frances Upritchard and many more.

Curator Lily Hacking is the 2011/2012 CNZ Blumhardt Foundation curatorial intern.
