Prairie Interlace examines the explosion of innovative textile-based art on the Canadian Prairies during the second half of the twentieth century. Although largely overlooked in histories of prairie art and craft, this was a period of intense energy and creativity. The exhibition features 60 works by 48 artists including settlers, immigrants, and Indigenous artists as well as influential visitors. Working across the Prairies, they challenged traditional approaches to weaving and embraced new techniques, materials, forms, and scale.
Prairie Interlace is a collaboration between Nickle Galleries and the MacKenzie Art Gallery of Regina and is curated by Michele Hardy, PhD (Nickle Galleries, University of Calgary), Timothy Long (Head Curator, MacKenzie Art Gallery) and Julia Krueger, PhD (Independent Curator and Scholar). The curators will be in attendance.
