Threads

Threads is rejoicing the ways in which artists explore the threaded medium. It may be knitted, weaved, looped or stitched, but this is no Rugs A Million sale. Promises will actually be delivered!

This December GoMA is turning five and we’ve all been invited to join in the celebrations with a handful of exhibitions, programs and events thrown in the lead up to the milestone. Good ol' GoMA have served us well over the years and we owe it to her to give her a big birthday to remember.

The Threads exhibition is one of the first in line to show off GoMA’s age and style. Bringing together a diverse range of contemporary textiles from the Gallery’s Australian, Asian and Pacific Collections, Threads is rejoicing the ways in which artists explore the threaded medium. It may be knitted, weaved, looped or stitched, but this is no Rugs A Million sale. Promises will actually be delivered! The exhibition investigates the concept of threads as a function of skin or interface with other cultures, reflecting the transformation of existing social, political and cultural conditions. If this all sounds too deep for you, don’t worry, there’s still plenty to appreciate as always when wandering through GoMA. Like all good art, you don’t always have to understand it, you just have to enjoy it.

GoMA definitely wants to celebrate textile style this birthday and why shouldn't she? She is deserving of a party, and really wants you to come. She's 5 and you really can't deny a 5 year old, can you?
