The Call for Entries for the 2021 virtual exhibition goes online Monday 30th March, West Australian time
“Re-imagined” a Collaboration with a Difference – Make the Ordinary Extraordinary
We know this online, virtual, challenge and exhibition will generate a range of questions from artists who plan to enter this innovative exhibition so the Team at the Global Textile Hub are talking with a range of artists who would like to enter – or THINK they would like to enter, but have some reservations about the technical aspects.
Our first chat was with Pauline White (Western Australian textile artist and curator). Like many people, Pauline had a lot of questions, isn’t a big user of technology (but she did a great job here) and offered some great insights! Thanks Pauline we enjoyed chatting with you!
We’ve also chatted with textile artist Julia Andrijasevich and were delighted with her enthusiastic response.
Julia immediately thought of with whom she would like collaborate, and was pleased to know this would be a juried and curated exhibition. Also, that the Exhibition, after Opening mid-August 2021, would remain online for several months giving artists global exposure for the sale of their artworks.
We plan to hold more of these online “chats” ……. and make them available to participants; to answer questions about the virtual format, photography of their artworks and how/when the images are to be submitted.
We’re also happy to chat with prospective artists and explain how to connect with their collaborators by use of this and other online meeting platforms.
Unfortunately, in these times, collaborating with anyone is going to have to be online, or through the postal service, or a combination of both.
