(01 Oct 2016 – 15 Jan 2017)
Here & Now is the first major curated exhibition of contemporary tapestry in England for over 20 years. Showcasing the breadth of international talent and most innovative approaches to the medium, the show challenges the notion that tapestry is a dying craft and marks a point in time for the artform.
Alongside British tapestry weavers, the exhibition features international artists from Australia, Norway, Latvia, Japan and the USA with over 20 artists represented overall.
Here & Now has been jointly curated by Bryony Windsor, Head of Exhibitions at NCCD and Lesley Millar, Professor of Textile Culture and Director of the International Textile Research Centre at the University for the Creative Arts, UK.
The show has been partly funded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation; the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Japan Foundation.
A fully illustrated catalogue is available to purchase from the exhibition.

11 Nov-8 Jan
Soft Engineering brings together the work of three well established textile artists for the first time; Deirdre Wood, Alison Ellen and Ann Richards. Having pursued separate careers in knitting and weaving, the artists found many common threads that have inspired them to work together to create this joint exhibition. These makers are all vigorously engaged in experiment and are passionate about materials, processes and the new forms emerging from them. Despite employing different techniques and structures, they ﬁnd that their approaches interconnect and cross over in intriguing and sometimes surprising ways.

12 Nov-8 Jan 16.
To coincide with our season of textiles, we host shiftWorks in our Mezzanine gallery. shiftWorks is a celebration of the shift dress; the first mainstream adoption of the shift dress was in 1965 and this touring exhibition highlights its importance. Twelve textile artists, designers and makers from seam, a textile collective, are creatively exploring their craft to showcase contemporary textile design using the shift dress as a canvas for their ideas.
