Australian Design Centre presents Open House: 3rd Tamworth Textile Triennial . This exhibition features the work of contemporary artists in fibre textile arts from across Australia, a snapshot of current and future practice.
Each triennial engages a guest curator and this exhibition is curated by Glenn Barkley. The theme, ‘Open House’, focusses on the recent global shift to the handmade in a time when screens and digital devices dominate our lives.
Open House celebrates the open-ended nature of textile practice today. All of the artists’ works are linked with things outside of themselves and their studios. Many celebrate the sense of belonging that comes from working with other artists; while others take on wide-ranging issues, such as the landscape and the environment, and the artist’s place in a world beset by environmental, social and cultural upheaval. Through the process of creating, talking and exhibiting, the artists join together with visitors as equal participants in an open house where all ideas and responses are welcome.
