Deborah Kruger will be representing Mexico in the inaugural Art Textile Biennale 2021 that is sponsored by Fibre Arts Australia. The exhibition seeks to exhibit the best of international contemporary art textiles and includes innovative work that is rooted primarily in textile as well as art that explores unexpected relationships between textile and other creative disciplines.
The Biennale includes 28 artists from 13 countries and will travel to two locations in Australia. The show will open at the East Gippsland Art Gallery in Bairnsdale, Victoria January 22 – March 5, 2021 and travel to Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery in Toowoomba, Queensland April 3 – May 31, 2021.
The exhibition was curated by Charlotte Yde, one of the leading contemporary quilt artists from Denmark and Hannah Lamb a mixed media textile and installation artist from the UK.
The curators are Glenys Mann, a contemporary quilt maker and Nonie Sutcliffe, an innovative embroidery artist and art quilter. Together, they are the moving force behind Fibre Arts Australia, which sponsors annual workshops with world-class teachers as well as exhibition opportunities.
