Future Fibre - White Box Gallery / Queensland College of the Arts, Griffith University / Australia

Opening last Thursday at White Box Gallery within the Queensland College of Arts, Griffiths University is group show Future Fibre. Curated by Danica Larkin, the exhibition brings together eight Australian artists whose practice engages textiles in their approach to art making and I am pleased to be included in the show. See an excerpt from the Media Release below.


Student Curator Selects the Best in Contemporary Australian Textile Art for Gold Coast Exhibition.

Queensland College of Art student Danica Larkin has pulled a major coup in curating the Future Fibre exhibition at the Whitebox Gallery. Larkin has managed to secure works from some of Australia’s most exciting contemporary artists working in textiles.

The exhibition features established artists such as Kate Just, Holly Story, Thomas C. Chung and others hailing from Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane. The young curator says, “we often think of textile-based practices like knitting and embroidery as crafts or hobbies but the artists in this exhibition show that there can be a much more thoughtful side to textiles in their work.”
Given the calibre of the artists in the show it is a major achievement for Larkin who is still an undergraduate student. The exhibition launches on Thursday 15th March at 6pm and is open to the public and it runs until 6th April.
