Obsessed: Compelled to make presents the work of 14 artists from across Australia, delving beyond the finished object, beyond the personality of the maker, into the fundamental conceptual framework of their creations.

The exhibition looks at the complexities of their materials and processes, the realities of their day-to-day studio routine and unravel what compels each maker to create over the course of their personal career – Why this technique or material? Why that concept? How does the mind of a maker work?

This exhibition explores the act of making through the framework of obsession – how it consumes us, carrying
 us along in its wake, colouring every aspect of our lives.
 With these professional artists, it is their obsessions, and all the associated angst, failures, breakthroughs and milestones, that feeds their productivity and to deliver exceptional outcomes.

Artists include: Gabriella Bisetto | Lorraine Connelly-Northey | Honor Freeman, | Jon Goulder | Kath Inglis |
 Laura McCusker |
 Elliat Rich and James B Young (Elbowrkshp) | Kate Rohde |
 Oliver Smith | Vipoo Srivilasa | Tjunkaya Tapaya | Louise Weaver | Liz Williamson.

Obsessed: Compelled to make is an Australian Design Centre of ADC on Tour exhibition touring to 12 venues across Australia, accompanied by a series of films and a full-length catalogue. It is curated by Lisa Cahill and Penny Craswell.

Exhibition dates: Thursday 8 February 2018 – Sunday 10 October 2021
