Memory & Remedy: Artist's Talk and Toast

22 June 2024
14:00 - 15:00
Included in general admission

Join us to celebrate the opening of Carey Bennett’s new screen-print exhibition with an artist’s talk and Babycham toast.

Memory & Remedy: Artist Talk & Toast: Memory & Remedy is an exciting new exhibition hosted at the Museum of Brands with British artist Carey Bennett. The screen-print exhibiton, running alongside this event, depicts vivid recollections of everyday brands through a bold colour palette and integrated typography.

The objects shown in Memory & Remedy are inspired by the artist's personal associations with childhood sickness and at-home remedies given by her parents. Since the diagnosis of both parents with dementia, the caregiving roles are reversed but the objects continue to be remedial to their relationship, even as the brands evolve. Several of the heritage brands Bennett has chosen are represented in the Brand Histories exhibition running concurrently in the Museum's Branding Hall space.

During this artist's talk and toast, Carey will discuss her inspirations and process, followed by a toast for attendees supplied by Babycham.

Museum of Brands: The Museum of Brands is the world's only museum dedicated to consumer history. We show 200 years of brands, packaging and advertising through the permanent exhibition the ‘Time Tunnel’ created by consumer historian Robert Opie. The Museum also presents temporary exhibitions, talks, webinars and workshops, to create and debate ideas and examine the role of brands in history and the modern world. We have a subtropical garden, and a Museum gift shop and cafe for visitors to enjoy.
