''Here & Now: contemporary tapestry from UK, Australia, Canada, Finland, Japan, Norway and the USA"
1st October 2016 - 15th January 2017
National Centre for Craft & Design, Sleaford, Lincolnshire
Here & Now is the first major curated exhibition of contemporary tapestry in England for over 20 years. Showcasing the breadth of international talent and most innovative approaches to the medium, the show challenges the notion that tapestry is a dying craft and marks a point in time for the artform.
Alongside British tapestry weavers, the exhibition features international artists from Australia, Norway, Latvia, Japan and the USA with over 20 artists represented overall.
Here & Now has been jointly curated by Bryony Windsor, Head of Exhibitions at NCCD and Lesley Millar, Professor of Textile Culture and Director of the International Textile Research Centre at the University for the Creative Arts, UK.
The show has been partly funded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation; the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Japan Foundation.
A fully illustrated catalogue is available to purchase from the exhibition.
