Tonight was the Private View of the Nets Textile exhibition at the TAFTA Geelong Forum, Corio. It features works by 34 Australian and UK based artists who have all made works in response to the theme of ‘Nets’. This was the first time in the duration of the four years of this project that the groups have shown together in one venue. This is a project that has impacted upon the textile careers of many people at an international level, both as makers within the group and as a viewer visiting the show.
It was exceptionally busy with fantastic feedback from visitors, on the diversity of work on show. Interesting, how we have responded with some similarities of concept whereas other works explore the cultural differences across the two hemispheres. I will be posting photographs as we progress through the week of the TAFTA Geelong Forum.
