In September of 2023, the Design Institute of Australia (DIA) hosted an exclusive event celebrating artist eX de Medici and her ‘Beautiful Wickedness’ exhibition. The DIA is the peak industry body within the design community and operates at a national scale providing Australian designers with knowledge, thought leadership, access and inclusivity within the community. Here at GH Commercial, we are proud to support the DIA through this event partnership held at the Queensland Art Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) in Brisbane.
This exclusive event welcomed the design community to attend a Q&A session with eX de Medici herself, as well as QAGOMA’s Samantha Littley, the curator of Australian Art. This forum covered a wide range of design led topics and was followed by a networking cocktail event where guests are also invited to experience the ‘Beautiful Wickedness’ exhibition. ‘Beautiful Wickedness’ is the most notable exhibition of Australian artist eX de Medici and explores concepts of the fragility of life, greed, commerce as well as themes of power, conflict and health.
This event was a great opportunity for our GH Commercial team to connect with the design community and be inspired by the phenomenal works of eX di Medici!
