Home exhibition in Banyule

Our local council has an exhibition on at the moment, titled Home: Reframing Craft and Domesticity.  It is at the Hatch Contemporary Arts Space in Ivanhoe.  It is on from April 4th till May 11th.
The gallery has been set up using entries from artists who made pieces specifically for the show and works from the permanent collection.  It was designed to represent different rooms in a house.
A friend and I visited recently and enjoyed the works.  We were not allowed to take pictures of specific works but could take them of the overall 'rooms'.
It is good to see more and more exhibitions that include textile and 'craft' practices.

Very interesting way to create a theme. Just wondering did an idividual artist create each whole room or was it curated like this?

As I understand it, it was curated like this - but don't hold me to that.
