Open Studio: Tender Trade

Tender Trade: five artists open their studio, their stagedoor, their workshop, their garage for you to visit. The carburetor is a metaphor for the heart, pumping fuel and air in harmony. It’s a body (of work) – come touch. Would you hand us that tool? I don’t know exactly what this does, but it seems to be in the right place and I trust you. The festival appears in the right place each year to be what you need it to be. Strike the balance between gentle and rough – dirty hands and tender hearts.

Tom Campbell, Bryan Foong, Emma Rani Hodges, R.R., Jess Semler.

Tender Trade’s studio is open as part of ANCA Mitchell open studios.

DESIGN Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
