MADA Talks: Assemble (UK)
Join us for a free public lecture by Jane Hall and Audrey Thomas-Hayes, members of London-based creative collective Assemble (UK).
In a design world often dominated by globally recognisable branded celebrities, the London-based creative collective Assemble actively resists the historical cliche of the lone genius.
Established in 2010 the group has built a reputation for championing collaborative working practices, and in particular working with the public as participants in a range of ongoing design projects.
Working across the fields of art, architecture and design, Assemble were the unexpected winners of the 2015 Turner Prize, Europe’s most prestigious contemporary art prize, for their on-going project Granby Four Streets, which was described by the jury as “a ground-up approach to regeneration, city planning and development in opposition to corporate gentrication.”
Presented by the Department of Architecture at Monash University in collaboration with the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, and supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and Development Victoria.
