Tapestry: Here & Now celebrates the vibrancy of tapestry-weaving today. The exhibition brings together the work of international makers to showcase the most innovative approaches to the art of contemporary tapestry. Alongside British tapestry weavers, the exhibition features artists from Australia, Norway, Latvia, Japan and the USA with over 20 artists represented, including Erin Riley, Caron Penney, Ai Ito, Jilly Edwards, Yasuko Fujino and Fiona Rutherford. Their work explores themes of enduring relevance including how we respond to nature and the urban environment, how tapestry can tell personal and political stories, and the skill of the hand-made. The Holburne’s Arts tapestry (1934-5) by Edward McKnight Kauffer will also be on show for the first time. Here & Now was curated by the National Centre for Craft & Design in partnership with Lesley Millar, Professor of Textile Culture and Director of the International Textile Research Centre at the University for the Creative Arts.
