Miniature Textiles from Japan and the UK
An exhibition of contemporary textile artists from Japan and the UK to celebrate fifteen years of collaborative activity. To celebrate the artists who have provided the foundation for the continuous exchange of ideas between the textile communities in Japan and the UK, the exhibition curator Professor Lesley Millar has organised an exhibition of miniature works from each of the artists, 51 in total, who have taken part in her various projects. The participants are drawn from a particular fifteen-year relationship developed over many projects, and this exhibition will be the first time that their works will be shown together. Those taking part represent some of the most important contemporary textile practitioners in Japan and the UK, alongside some of the most exciting emerging talent from the recent exhibitions.
The exhibition is shown in the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation in London 31 Oct 2011 to 14 Dec 2011, as well as at two galleries in Japan in 2012: GalleryGallery, Kyoto and Nagoya University of Arts and Science.
