Venue: Deakin University Burwood Library Gallery Space
Foyer Building V, 221 Burwood Highway, Burwood

This exhibition draws upon treasures from the Deakin University Art Collection and features artworks using embroidery, weaving and fibre based materials. The exhibition presents a diverse group of artists working in various geographical and cultural contexts.

The exhibition is built around an important work by world renowned Colombian artist Olga de Amaral who was one of the key abstract artists working in New York in the 1960s.

The exhibition also features traditional pandanus weavings by Julie Djulibing from Ramingining in Arnhem Land, a new acquisition by Katoomba based artist Adrienne Doig and the work of Peter Collingwood, described by Roger Hardwick in The Guardian as ‘the pre-eminent British artist weaver of the past 50 years’.

Curated by James Lynch and Claire Muir, Deakin University.
