A Stitch in Time brings together the work of seven prominent, contemporary Australian artists, each working across a broad range of media from painting, sculpture and printmaking, to design and installation. These artists are unified by a shared interest in working with an array of traditionally craft-related techniques. Predominantly classified as an ‘inferior art’ in Western history, the elevation of craft as a ‘high art’ and the recognition of women artists has been inextricably linked. Today, craft practices sit resolutely within contemporary art, imbued with consequential cultural and political power. A Stitch in Time presents artists who skilfully enfold a myriad of techniques and processes into works of profound potency.
