Exhibition Description

strung out and undone is a culminating exhibition of artworks submitted to the 2014 International World of Threads Festival and selected for display at the Living Arts Centre Gallery. The works chosen challenge the traditional framework of textile and fibre based arts by introducing diverse contemporary approaches that collectively re-define the medium. This exhibition deconstructs traditional practices through a combination of materials, an integration of mixed methodologies and a re-purposing of conventional techniques. Selected artists fuse the pleasure of fibre-based practice with the desire for sensory experience, playful anecdotes, contemplative forms and curious environments. Uncertain and obscure, untamed and stressed, strung out and undone sets new rules, subverting past expectations and sprawling in new directions.

There are 12 artists in this exhibition, hailing from Canada, Germany, New Zealand and the USA.







The Living Arts Centre Gallery is the Centre's art exhibition space, with a mandate to nurture, foster and support the local arts community, this 2100 square foot exhibition space hosts 7 exhibitions by art organizations, artist collectives and groups of three or more individuals with priority given to artists from the Peel Region. The season runs from September to August.
