ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Contemporary Textile Collection is a three-part exhibition providing access to the Idea Exchange Art + Design permanent collection of Contemporary Canadian fibre-based work. On display at all three of our gallery locations across Cambridge, this is the largest assemblage of works from our collection.
For nearly 30 years, Idea Exchange Art + Design (formerly Cambridge Galleries) has collected seminal works by Canadian artists working in textile and fibre-based mediums. This unprecedented three-part exhibition presents nearly a quarter of the specialized collection, from early to recent acquisitions, and showcases the diversity of artistic concerns from craft-based processes to conceptual frameworks.
