Wellington’s public and dealer galleries are joining together for a third time to present a collaborative visual arts festival in March 2022. Themed around textiles, the festival will shed light on contemporary and historical textile practices within the context of art in Aotearoa, placing renewed emphasis on the medium.
A key event on the 2022 programme will be a one-day online symposium hosted by The Dowse Art Museum on Thursday 17th March in Lower Hutt. The symposium will provide a forum for artists, writers, curators, collectors and the general public to converge to share knowledge, network and engage in critical discussion and thought leadership.
