Zephyr

1 Aug 2019 - 31 Aug 2019

Artists: John Barbour, Jon Campbell, Rubaba Haider, Brooke Hyrons, Sam Martin, Raquel Ormella, Janet Passehl (USA), Silo String Quartet, Hayley Tan, Kei Takamura (GER/JPN), Katie West.

Held across multiple sites, Zephyr is an encounter with textiles - their cultural histories, materiality and connection to memory. The Zephyr exhibition is part of the Cultural Threads festival and explores the metaphors of folds, falls and fragility whispered by the use of textiles in art.

Cultural Threads is a month-long celebration of textile art hosted by the City of Greater Dandenong. Cultural Threads invites the community from all ages and backgrounds to engage in a variety of textile-based initiatives.
The exhibition launch event is on Saturday 3 August at 2pm with performance by Silo String Quartet.

Zephyr will be held across four of Greater Dandenong's cultural venues: Heritage Hill Museum and Historic Gardens, Harmony Square, Garnar Lane Light Boxes and Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre. Please see specific venue locations and opening hours below:
