A TEXTILE EXHIBITION ABOUT CLIMATE CRISIS

Sunday, 19 March 2017 15:00

Melbourne friends: right now, at the Heide Museum of Modern Art, you can catch a rather interesting textiles exhibition from local artist Rebecca Mayo, whose interests include sustainable practices, local ecologies and forgotten printmaking techniques.

Entitled Habitus, the installation – a wall of cloth sandbags printed using eighteenth century Toile de Jouy methods and dyes made from indigenous and introduced plants – is a reflection on the Heide site itself and symbolises an environmental crisis point. It’s part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017, and runs till Sunday June 18th. Pop past the museum’s website to find out more, and head over this-a-way to see more from Rebecca Mayo.
