Based on the success and huge interest generated by the F!NK Collaborative Jug Project, the Alternate Jug designs developed by the 15 participating artists/designers is on exhibition now at Craft ACT Canberra until 17 October 2020.
The collaboration features extraordinary ANU School of Art & Design alumni, including Alex Asch, Chick Butcher, Cobi Cockburn, Cesar Cueva, Xanthe Gay, Alison Jackson, Jess Higgins and others.
F!NK invited 15 creatives with a direct connection to Robert and/or F!NK over the past 27 years to reimagine the iconic F!NK jug with the intent to be included in the F!NK collaborative jug project auction earlier in the year. Two blank F!NK jugs were provided to each artist with which to begin. The first set of finished bespoke artworks created as a result of this collaboration were sold in the online auction to raise funds for charity. Due to the success of the live auction, Craft ACT invited F!NK to showcase the alternative designs in the F!NK alternative jug project exhibition to allow people to view the collaboration in person.
F!NK alternative jug project is a collaborative exhibition which pays homage to the late Robert Foster, designer and founder of F!NK + Co.
