Tamworth Regional Gallery launches 4th Tamworth Textile Triennial Exhibition, Tension[s] 2020

The 4th Tamworth Textile Triennial, Tension[s] 2020 national tour, was launched at Tamworth Regional Gallery over the weekend.

The Tamworth Textile Triennial, held every three years, showcases the best of textile art from across the country attracting artist participation from all states in Australia. Tension[s] 2020: Tamworth Textile Triennial has been curated by Vic McEwan creating an important record of the changing nature and progress of textile practice from a national perspective.

Tension[s] 2020 acknowledges that the world has long been a place under various tension[s], both harmonious and dissonant. In order to bear witness to, contribute to and respond to these tensions, the triennial will focus on the future of people and place through textile as a material and human experience as materiality.

Artists from all across Australia will be represented in the Triennial, including local Tamworth Indigenous Artist, Yinarr Maramali, as we celebrate the work of textiles artists around the country and acknowledge the important role that our regional gallery plays not just locally, but across the country.

The national tour will visit Tamworth, Mosman, Wagga Wagga, Ararat, Mornington, Wangaratta, Canberra, Bowen Hills, Mackay, Murwillambah, and Taree throughout 2020 and 2021. It will also be provided as an Online Exhibition to allow anyone anywhere to access the Exhibition.

The exhibition will be on display at Tamworth Regional Gallery from 1 August Р20 September 2020. From there, it will then embark on its national tour until 23 October 2022.
