Design revisited: Kirstie Rea

DESIGN Canberra’s new Design Revisited event series is a unique opportunity to celebrate design history, design education and design excellence in a city of design.

In these personal and public conversations, we meet the designers as they reflect on how their designs came to be, the relationships that emerged from the experience, and consider what they would do differently if they had the opportunity all over again.

Join DESIGN Canberra Designer-in-Residence, and internationally acclaimed glass maker, Kirstie Rea as she revisits some of her most important works and discusses how care shapes her practice. With a career as an independent maker spanning more than 30 years, Kirstie’s practice has been recognized at both a national and international level, featuring in numerous solo and group shows, a recent survey exhibition and esteemed public and private collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

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.
