PRAIRIE INTERLACE: WEAVING, MODERNISMS AND THE EXPANDED FRAME, 1960–2000 LOOKS BACK TO THE EXPLOSION OF INNOVATIVE TEXTILE-BASED ART ON THE CANADIAN PRAIRIES DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY.
With a focus on weaving and other interlace practices, such as rug hooking and crochet, the exhibition examines how artists of diverse backgrounds wove new histories of fibre during a period of intense energy and collective creativity.
This touring exhibition, a collaboration between Nickle Galleries (Calgary, AB) and the MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina, SK), features sixty artworks by forty-eight artists and draws on public and private collections from across Canada.
