About the exhibition

Tamworth Textile Triennial, held every three years, showcases the best of textile art from across the country, attracting artist participation from all states in Australia. Tension(s) 2020: Tamworth Textile Triennial has been curated by Vic McEwan.

"Musical theory teaches us that as we change the tension that a material is under, we also change its pitch. It is through the combining of these various tensions that we are able to create a chord, a melody, a verse, a chorus. As the curator of Tension(s) 2020, I aim to take the various tones and pitches offered by the tension(s) these artists are exploring, and attempt to bring them together into a coherence of composition: a spatial and visual composition that is sometimes in unison,

sometimes dissonant, sometimes sweet and melodic, and sometimes pure noise.

Tension(s) 2020 is a coming together that both reveals and conceals the artist, reveals and conceals the audience, and provokes us to actively remember that if there is one thing hindsight has taught us, it is that we risk danger whenever we draw meaning from only one perspective.
