Textile making traditions spans global cultures as one of the earliest human technologies. It has been a staple in industry, fashion, craft and decorative arts throughout the ages but it particularly made a resurgence in the 1960s back into the contemporary art world. Since then Fibre and textile arts have been developing new forms and language -becoming more conceptual and cross-disciplinary, even into this digital age.
This group exhibition explores how contemporary artists are embracing new technological advances whilst retaining elements of traditional craft to explores themes of personal experience, collective memory, political and ecological messages and tongue in cheek approaches to textiles.
