'Aluminium’ is a single material exploration. Six artists, makers and designers respond to the allure, practicality, and ethics of aluminium and showcase the versatile applications of this metal within contemporary material practice.

Exhibitors use exclusively recycled aluminium to produce sculptural and practical objects of design as expressions of the material’s capabilities. The exhibition brings attention to the complexities of aluminium use, particularly within craft and design and encourages the broader design industries to follow suit and be more mindful of material provenance.
