Mayoral Chain


MAYORAL CHAIN
9 July - 27 August 2017
Buda Historic Home & Garden

Commissioned by Craft Victoria, ten contemporary Australian artists have responded to the ceremonial mayoral chain, producing artworks that explore notions of grandeur and responsibility through materials and processes.

Inspired by the craftsmanship and legacy integral to the Mayoral Chain, the work in this exhibition revisits traditional ways of making and traditional ceremonies within contemporary society.

The exhibition has been coordinated by Craft Victoria and is the first in a series of regional touring exhibitions highlighting craft practice across the state of Victoria.

Featuring artists Alexi Freeman and Tessa Blazey, Anna Davern, Claire McArdle, Marcos Guzman, Kate Rohde, Anna Varendorff, Maree Clarke, Pennie Jagiello and Roseanne Bartley. Mayoral Chain was originally displayed at Craft Victoria in 2016. Click here for further information on the exhibition, including artist biographies.

For the Buda exhibition, a further two artists have been included from the Horsham Regional Art Gallery's recent Crafting Civic Pride exhibition: Gail Harradine and Aaron Carter
