Open House: Tamworth Textile Triennial
This exhibition celebrates the open-ended, porous nature of textiles practice today. It introduces a group of artists who have not previously exhibited in the triennial, but who are linked in some way to a sense of broader engagement with things outside of themselves and their studios. Many celebrate the process 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. The Tamworth Textile Triennial is an opportunity to build on the rich cultural history and reputation that the Tamworth biennials and triennials have established, while pushing forward new conversations and creating a safe place for unsafe discussions.
