As we unfold from the national and global events of past few years, we reveal subtle shifts in our understandings and values—with reflections on a deeper knowing of our communities and environs. Often these shifts or transferences advocate a release of busyness, a focus on personal and communal presence, nourishment and balance.
Since the Tamworth Fibre Textile collection began in 1973 artists have interwoven and shared lived experiences and negotiated stories through the materiality of textile practice.
The 5th Tamworth Textile Triennial builds on this tradition with a future focus on the intangible essence of what it means to be human in the fabric of today’s society and will be an opportunity to celebrate Australian textiles practice, for artists to create and explore the relationality and residues of change through a multiplicity of materials, methods and meanings.
Residue + Response: 5th Tamworth Textile Triennial has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia and Regional Arts Fund programs, and by the NSW Government.
