Radiant Dark is a modern, Canadian design exhibition featuring the work of 33 design studios. Julie Nicholson and Shaun Moore of MADE have conceived Radiant Dark as a series of independent, curated exhibitions. The 2009 theme of Radiant Corruptions is explored through the fresh vision of contemporary Canadian designers, makers, architects, artists and craftspeople.

A provocative exploration of the relationships between elegance and corruption is the vehicle for Radiant Dark's continuing conversation through design. This year the exhibition includes an informal discussion "Walk & Talk". The event is free to the public and takes the form of an informal guided tour as eight design studios discuss their work and practice. "Walk & Talk" features - Cali Balles and Don Maclennan, Lubo Brezina, Heidi Earnshaw, Jennifer Graham, Jeremy Hatch, Bev Hisey, Angela Iarocci, Tamara Rushlow.

* Exhibition is free to the public.
