Coming February-March 2014
Object: Australian Design Centre is excited to announce New Weave, a new exhibition of the handmade to be shown at Object Gallery from February to March 2014.
New Weave pushes the boundaries of the woven form: artists and designers re-appropriating traditional weaving techniques, using different materials to create intricate and striking wearables, objects and installations. From the sculptural fibre vessels of Lorraine Connelly-Northey to other works in glass, wood, textiles and paper, weaving will leap off the loom and into the future.
Curated by guest curator Lisa Cahill, who co-curated the Australian component of the Triennale of Craft in Kanazawa, Japan for Object, New Weave explores the common language of weaving, showing how it can be used to create new forms by hand that are produced in different ways using collaboration, technology and manufacturing.
The full list of artists will be announced soon.
