Brutalist Block Party – The Association of Brutification With Practise Studio Practise
Brutalist Block Party is a May-long program of talks, workshops, lunches, dinners, social situations and a weekly produce market – presented by Assemble Papers and Open House Melbourne.
Join PSP family Lauren Stephens, Laura Clauscen and Fred Mora in a Brutification workshop. Household objects will undergo a Brutalising assembly line, redefining them as objects of intrigue and desire. Practise Studio Practise produce work in the fields of art direction, set design, product design and curatorial exercises. Their practice is a continued exploration of materials, rituals and common objects that are re-contextualised to communicate new visual ideas.
Brutalist Block Party is part of a broader Open House Melbourne program called ’What’s the beef with Brutalism?’ – a series of screenings, talks and tours that consider people’s beef with a Béton brut, explore the social significance of the style, and consider what is the new, new brutalism?
