The New Quilt

Until 11th April 2021

The New Quilt is a survey exhibition of contemporary Australian quilt art presented by QuiltNSW showcasing never seen before quilts. It is a juried survey exhibition showcasing the art of quilting that reflects the richness and diversity of contemporary expressions of the quilt medium in Australia.

In lieu of a theme, textile artists were invited to, Think big, think bold – be adventurous!

The final selection is an opportunity to experience an amazing array of creativity and innovation from across quilting Australia.

Visitors may find themselves redefining their perception of a quilt, beyond layering of materials, to that of an artwork full of aesthetic impact, technical skill and powerful storytelling.

This fascinating exhibition includes two and three dimensional sculptural works in a huge range of materials and styles, responding to many of the challenges we have faced in 2020 including bushfires and Covid-19, as well as environmental challenges, new life, revenge and sheer joy! Not to be missed!
