From fashion and home décor to agriculture and the medical field, textiles permeate every facet of human life. Textiles are used to proclaim ideas – bringing together people under the banners of their collective purpose; to pass down histories – using native materials to weave familial stories into wall hangings and tapestries; and to decorate – flashy fashion can also investigate community, agency and domesticity.
TEXTURE features both local interstate emerging and established artists in an exhibition that explores all that textiles can do and be.
