Artist Clement Meadmore is known worldwide for his dramatic and gravity-defying metal sculptures inspired by his love of abstract art and jazz music. But before Meadmore moved to New York in 1963 to achieve international acclaim, he had worked as a young industrial designer in Melbourne.

In the early 1950s, Meadmore set up an independent design practice in Hawthorn that became the talk of the town. He was a creative force, designing shop interiors, record covers, and a small range of innovative furniture and lighting designs popular with young homemakers and modernist architects of the period.

Clement Meadmore: Man of Steel is a comprehensive survey of Meadmore’s design practice in Australia and features rare examples of Meadmore’s furniture and lighting, including newly discovered designs exhibited for the first time.

Curated by Dean Keep And Jeromie Maver in association with the Town Hall Gallery.

10am - 5pm, Tuesday to Friday. 10am - 4pm, Saturday and Sunday. Closed Mondays.
