Tension(s) 2020: Tamworth Textile Triennial

Curated by Vic McEwan, ‘Tension(s) 2020’ acknowledges that the world has long been a place under various tensions. To bear witness, contribute and respond to these tensions, the triennial focuses on the future of people and place through textile as a material and human experience as materiality. McEwen aims to take ‘the tension(s) these artists are exploring, and attempt to bring them together into a coherence of composition: a spatial and visual composition that is sometimes in unison, sometimes dissonant, sometimes sweet and melodic, and sometimes pure noise.’
