9¢ Plus is pleased to present Yin Yang, an exhibition curated by Tessa Perutz.

Yin Yang showcases a compelling body of work by 35 female contemporary artists and designers, challenging the often arbitrary distinction between “art” and “design.”

Featuring the work of painters, sculptors, illustrators, writers, furniture designers, fashion designers, printmakers, and more – each maker was invited to produce a work that challenges their usual mode of creation to reach an aesthetic end. Each participant, therefore, will be exhibiting work that is very different from what is normally shown as a representation of that person.

With this shift, the artist is re-contextualizing their own methodology – gaining a new, macrocosmic approach to ‘making’ as a whole. This exhibition prompts an undercurrent of dialogue about our expectations of artists and creators of our generation, attempting to expand this often too stark and linear division between “art’ and “design” in our modern landscape.

Yin Yang functions as an open platform – showcasing a freeform survey of unusual works by popular creative tastemakers, outside of the structured confines of the typical gallery, boutique, or “art-viewing” setting. We hope you will join us for what we believe is a mind-bending and stimulatingly electric exhibition.
