The second Arttextiles exhibition at Bury St. Edmunds, UK revealed significant shifts and an exciting expansion of the language of textiles since the first exhibit four years before.
“This exhibition assembles challenging and persuasive evidence that the field, which for now we name ‘art textiles,’ is a potent site within the visual arts at the start of the 21st century...Work here is diverse, stimulating, thoughtful, witty, provocative: it steps out from, rather than operates within, textile traditions. These artists approach tradition and process as a starting point, rather than a place in which to settle down.”
