Exhibition: Soft Hair and Woven Threads

24 July – 1 November 2023

Textile art is one of the oldest forms of creative practice in human civilization, utilized for both practical purposes and storytelling. Its rich history, forged predominantly by women, laid the foundations for contemporary textile artists. As technology has evolved and mass production of fiber items became part of daily life, artists still choose the labor of love that comes with the handmade. The process of creating a work becomes as important as the final outcome, with materials becoming physical extensions of the artist’s hands.

Featuring Julia Boros, Lilly Buttrose, Carly Tarkari Dodd, Lucia Dohrmann, Jaquie Hagan, Nami Kulyuru and Rosina Possingham.
