Grainger Museum collaboration wins Radiant Pavilion 2019 People’s Choice Award

A two-day pop-up exhibition held at the Grainger Museum in collaboration with CLINKproject6 and the Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery and Object Biennial, titled Radiant Pavilion, was voted the People’s Choice Award winner by Biennial visitors.

CLINKproject6 is an art collective of professional and academic staff and undergraduate and post-graduate level students from the Hungry Creek School of Art & Craft and the Dunedin School of Art (Otago Polytechnic), New Zealand. The CLINKproject6 output has been pop-up or intervention-flavoured jewellery and textile exhibits in Auckland locations.

This year the CLINKproject team crossed the Tasman to Melbourne to align their project with the Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery and Object Biennial held in September. Each participant of CLINKproject6 selected an item from the Grainger Museum collection to act as a stimulus for a responding jewellery or textile work. The finished responsive pieces were placed within the permanent exhibits at the Grainger Museum, making them publicly available to visitors in the final days of Radiant Pavilion.
