Collide + Divide is a discipline-bending object based exhibition that will feature eleven emerging JamFactory associates who work in various mediums. Each artist has been put into a group where they will collaborate on creating a body of work that celebrates interdisciplinary skill sharing, merging both contemporary art and craftsmanship.

JamFactory is at the center of craft and design in South Australia and this exhibition seeks to explore the opportunities of a cross-discipline collaboration between the four JamFactory studios of glass, ceramics, jewelry and furniture.

The task of each associate is to gain access to new insights and materialities as they undertake this cross disciplinary focus. Collide + Divide is an opportunity to embrace the unique location of the JamFactory, one of the few arts centers in the world to house four separate studios for craft excellence under one roof.
