Indigenous design across fashion, interiors, architecture and more is showcased in this first national survey of ATSI design

Architect Jefa Greenaway curates the first national survey of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander design this month at the Koorie Heritage Trust Galleries in Federation Square. Showcasing Indigenous design projects from across fashion, interiors, product design, landscape, architecture and town planning, the exhibition hopes to challenge preconceptions about Indigenous design and highlight the depth and diversity of design talent around Australia. Designers include Marcus Lee Designs, who re-designed the guernsey for the 2013 all-Indigenous AFL International Rules game in Ireland, fashion from Arki The Label and Teagan Cowlishaw, and textiles by Injalak Arts and Babbarra Design just to name a few.
