Interwoven

Textile holds emotions and stories. Interwoven is an exhibition exploring ties between art and textile design, including a glimpse of bold new materials used by experimental designers. It interweaves fibres, techniques, textures and diverse materials into a tapestry fusing the legacy of contemporary art, ancient handicrafts, new technology and futuristic visions. A timeless source of warmth and security, textiles preserve an important fragment of human history, while also carrying on ancient techniques and narratives from generation to generation.
