Today’s Craft Renaissance – A Textile Art Exhibition

“Today’s craft renaissance can be seen particularly in textile art. This is led by Indigenous artists who have revived customary techniques as a way of strengthening their community. We look at examples from First Nations artists in Australia as well as North America. For non-Indigenous artists, the slow process of weaving is a way of connecting with deep time in both nature and human history. This is reflected particularly in Australian tapestry art. We conclude with a reflection on what a “craft renaissance” might mean in the 21st century, particularly with the challenge of a finite planet.”
