Ararat Regional Art Gallery is Australia’s most dedicated presenter of contemporary textile art. Since the early 1970s, the gallery has collected continually and today it holds the most comprehensive collection of textile and fibre art in Australia.

 

Enmeshed: woven artworks from the Ararat Regional Art Gallery collection spans the heady days of the 1970s through to now and features works by formative influences such as John Corbett, Ewa Pachuka and Jutta Fedderson alongside more contemporary artists including Kate Just, Sebastian Di Mauro and Lucy Irvine who take the idea of weaving in fresh, new directions.

 

Enmeshed explores the ways artists use textile and fibre materials and techniques to push the boundaries of contemporary practice, from large textile works which soften public spaces, work which reference gender and cultural identity through the relationship of textiles to the body, through to innovative works that combine unconventional materials with reference to weaving traditions.

 

Enmeshed is a Horsham Regional Art Gallery exhibition presented in partnership with Ararat Regional Art Gallery.
