Tension(s) 2020: Tamworth Textile Triennial has been curated by Vic McEwan creating an important record of the changing nature and progress of textile practice from a national perspective.

In order to bear witness to, contribute to and respond to these tensions, the triennial will focus on the future of people and place through textile as a material and human experience as materiality.
