9 October – 17 November 2020
Seed Stitch Contemporary Textile Award 2020 is a biennial exhibition produced and presented by Australian Design Centre in partnership with the Seed Stitch Collective.
This year the competition attracted 49 entries from NSW textile artists and the exhibition features outstanding work by the 25 finalists. A broad selection of contemporary textiles engages material use from waste to silk, with themes ranging from artificial intelligence, to the environment and the current pandemic.
The exhibition will also travel to Tamworth Regional Gallery, as part of our ADC On Tour national exhibition touring program from 28 November to 2 February 2021.
