A Prefix

We recently had a day out to visit an exhibition of fibre and textile works at the Western Australian Museum - Perth Cultural Centre, James Street, Northbridge.

Developed to celebrate the 30 year Sister State relationship between Western Australia and Hyogo, Japan this exhibition brings together works from 50 Western Australian and Japanese artists that reflect on the rich universal traditions embedded within contemporary fibre and textile practice.

Getting into the museum, you first have to sneak past this rather wonderful dinosaur who guards the entrance foyer -

Then straight up the stairs into the Museums magnificent Hackett Hall Gallery. This is looking up at the beautiful stenciled ceiling -

There are many textile pieces on display in this exhibition, both large -.

In forground - work by Nobuko Hiroi
