TSA Members’ Exhibition
Member exhibitions of contemporary artwork are relatively new to TSA. These visual displays have come as a response to the increased numbers of textile artists who are currently TSA members, and are now an important addition to the symposium.
The Organizing Committee in Vancouver took a new approach to the 2018 members’ exhibition. In relation to the symposium theme The Social Fabric: Deep Local to Pan Global, members were invited to submit a small-scale original textile inspired by a specific landmark or textile related object sourced from their local community or a museum. Collaborations between artists and researchers were encouraged.
The exhibition will be on view for the duration of the symposium in the lobby of the Sheraton Wall Centre.
A representative panel was selected for a round table discussion from the artists whose work was accepted. This will take place Friday, during the lunch break and focus on collaboration and related creative process and research.
