Group Exchange: 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial is a touring exhibition organised by the Tamworth Regional Gallery and curated by Cecilia Heffer, Senior Lecturer and Course Director of Fashion and Textiles in the School of Design at the University of Technology Sydney. Bringing together the work of 22 textiles artists from around Australia Group Exchange celebrates collaboration and experimentation, examining the creative outcomes of shared knowledge. Group Exchange presents the extraordinary work that has emerged from this enquiry. In questioning what collaboration can mean for their practice artists have engaged in a dynamic creative dialogue and have demonstrated to us how new work and meaning emerges from relationship and exchange. In this Textile Triennial, collaboration has opened up many and varied interpretations of the theme. Each artist has provided unique insights through their rich and diverse experience and introduced us to new original ways of viewing practice.
