About this event

Bead Friends Forever is a collaborative exhibition between best friends Alina Tang and Johanna Acs. After 22 years of friendship we are finally making art together!

Join us at Paper Mountain for a bright and colourful installation that includes small magical objects made from iron on beads, such as smiling flowers, booby houses, small babies, fruits, cakes with candles, cupcakes, lollies, rainbows, pizzas, happy clouds and sad clouds, all made with the help of our closest buds.

Both adults and kids will have the opportunity to create their very own bead creations in a series of workshops running in conjunction with the exhibition.

Presented by:

Alina and Johanna’s friendship started at the tender age of two, a time in which we would eat Peter’s bucket ice creams and wear no pants. We have been inseparable ever since and are currently working together at Beau Est Mien, a printmaking and design studio based at Paper Mountain.

Alina enjoys hunting for pimples to pop (beware), granny naps, and cutting food with scissors. Johanna is fond of prairie dogs in outfits on Instagram and Lorenzo’s lunch specials at the Re Store. She has been Alina’s right-hand woman on many art projects and embarrassing hula hoop routines.

Our first artistic collaboration Bead Friends Forever stems from a mutual love for pastel colours, babies, faces on inanimate objects, and spending time together.
