Slipstitch presents an Australian perspective on the contemporary uptake of embroidery by a new generation of artists and considers how the unique attributes of this medium are employed as a vehicle for artists exploring personal narratives.
 Embroidery used as a drawing tool operates as a device for the exploration of autobiographical storytelling; through figurative gestures, text, cultural symbolism or nuanced metaphors.

Featuring recent work from Mae Finlayson, David Green, Lucas Grogan, Alice Kettle, Tim Moore, Silke Raetze, Demelza Sherwood, Matt Siwerski, Jane Theau, Sera Waters, Elyse Watkins and Ilka White.

An Ararat Regional Art Gallery and NETS Victoria touring exhibition. Curated by Dr Belinda von Mengersen.
