Textile based artworks have been a growing presence in art galleries over the last decade with artists investigating a variety of new and age-old concerns with fibres and threads. The boundaries of traditional techniques such as weaving and embroidery have been pushed by artists who are interested in embracing the potential of thread in contemporary art.
Textile as medium also relates to the gallery’s past as Crawford School of Arts; our shared histories and teachings will be illustrated in Following threads with the display of our collection of lace artefacts.
