I’m Flagging How I Felt

Interactive play for all ages

08 Jun - 27 Aug 2023 |

Admission: Free

In the Lobby Gallery, I’m Flagging How I Felt is a playful space where you are invited to make a flag or a banner and play with fabric, symbols and shapes. Our exhibition this season is all about remembering the past and imagining other ways of being together in the future. The artists encourage us to think about the future, what we value and how we want to live. It includes beautiful memorial quilts; banners for an imagined land; a radio station in a dystopian future; pots and jewellery excavated from an imaginary archaeological dig and paintings of objects that could have magical properties. I’m Flagging How I Felt is an opportunity for children, young people and adults to explore the themes of the exhibitions while playing and making their own interpretations of artworks.

This space was inspired by and reproduces text and images from Modern Flag Design – an Expansion of Good Flag, Bad Flag: How to Design a Great Flag by Martin Joubert, with the advice of Ted Kaye.

“A Flag should be simple, readily made, and capable of being made up in bunting; it should be different from the flag of any other county, place or people; it should be significant; it should be readily distinguishable at a distance; the colours should be well contrasted and durable; and lastly, and not the least important point, it should be effective and handsome.”
