Shepparton Art Museum is a leading light in ceramics in the country. An institution that does great things to support and extend awareness of ceramics within Australia. Thus I was honoured to be approached by SAM Curator Anna Briers to curate the SAM Showcase for 2016.
The good folks at MPavilion and Office for Good Design kindly invited Mr Kitly to host a Tea Meet at the MPavilion in November 2014. Originally considering a modern tea experience, we in in the end decided to try a distinct meeting of worlds. The very traditional Omote Senke Tea School meets Mr Kitly's ceramicists' contemporary tea bowls.
Mr Kitly curated Souvenir Tent at MoMa (MONA Market) 2014. We invited some of our favourite artists and also creators for Dagmar Rousset to make works especially for MONA working to the theme of The River Derwent Heavy Metals Project.
