Exposition   The Mundaring Art Centre Perth     Until 21 December 2014

'In partnership with Fibre Arts Australia and Warwick Regional Gallery Queensland, seven international and six Australian artists come together to showcase the talent of fibre and textile artists from around the world. Each artist has been invited to create new works in response to a common object. Their response, created using the artists preferred medium, will be exhibited alongside the original object providing the audience with the opportunity to glimpse the artist’s journey as well as some of the finest contemporary textile techniques.'

 ‘RESPONSE’ is MAKING ART WORK’s latest contemporary art exhibition in Maidstone Museum’s Bentlif and Bearsted Galleries from 8 – 29 November 2014.



Using the site of the Museum as inspiration, the artists from Maidstone co-operative Making Art Work have produced a range of sculpture, photography, collage and print to explore the function, collection and architecture of the County Town’s award winning Museum and Galleries. This is an opportunity to see work by some of the Southeast’s most exciting contemporary artists in collaboration with Maidstone Museum.As one of the curators states: “The exhibition will suggest an eclectic “curiosity cabinet” of exhibits which allows the audience a new perspective on the Museum’s collection and its environment. Each artist has explored different themes and techniques, from making a survey of the architectural structure of the building to commenting on the functional purposes of a museum, re-interpreting the wealth of collections the museum has to offer."
