Clement Meadmore: The art of mid-century design (installation view) 2018
Courtesy of Christian Capurro
What is it like to be a designer in Australia today when design theft is so prevalent? In Australia replicas of originals remain legal despite fakes being criminalised in Europe and Britain. In the 1950s Clement Meadmore had his own stoush with another manufacturer and the patent office. At the peak of his success, Meadmore’s corded chair would be produced by no less than six copyists.
Join Anne-Maree Sargeant, Director Authentic Design Alliance for a conversation with renowned designer, Adam Cornish and guest curators Dean Keep and Jeromie Maver on the perils of protecting original designs – a concern for designers even more so today.
Extended opening hours from 5pm for pre-program exhibition viewing.
