The 2nd Tamworth Contemporary Textile Triennial.

Currently showing at Glasshouse Regional Gallery, NSW
Cnr Clarence & Hay Streets Port Macquarie

3 September – Sunday 23 October 2016

The Tamworth Textile Triennial follows a rich cultural heritage of textile practice and excellence in Australia, dating back to 1975. The current exhibition Group Exchange shows twenty-two artists from around Australia reflecting on ideas around collaboration and inter-disciplinary thinking in relation to their practice.
Ilka’s work Dwelling explores interconnectedness and includes photography, embroidery, weaving and sculpture produced in collaboration with Kristian Laemmle-Ruff, Rosemary O’Rourke, Darren Harvey, Chris Sprague and the Merri Creek billabong.
