Date & Time
Curated by Valerie Kirk, Head of Textiles at the Australian National University. The theme for the Biennial was the gathering of momentum and ideas in response to evolving current technologies in textiles.
“History and Tradition have not been negated. On the contrary, there is a reawakened interest in preserving knowledge and expertise, respecting past traditions and making sure they continue into the future. there is a global attraction to Indigenous textiles and fibre works and many collaborations, development/commercial projects between cultures”
