People who have saved this event:


Textile art has long been used for practical, ornate and expressive means – a cultural vessel for storytelling in the absence of written word.


Fiber artists working with the medium continue to push boundaries, redefining the dialogue between traditional and contemporary methods of woven narration. The selected works ranging in modern and contemporary style, exhibit a complex, undulating display of thread’s ability to tell stories and evoke woven symbolism.

Thread. showcases a culmination of work by some of today’s leading fibre artists alongside a selection from the Museum’s permanent collection.
