Open House: Tamworth Textile Triennial

28 March – 10 May

Open House: Tamworth Textile Triennial celebrates the open-ended nature of textiles practice today. All of the participant 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.

A Tamworth Regional Gallery Touring exhibition curated by Glenn Barkley

This exhibition has been developed by Tamworth Regional Gallery and is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians.
