Prairie Interlace: Weaving, Modernisms and the Expanded Frame 1960–2000

Prairie Interlace: Weaving, Modernisms, and the Expanded Frame, 1960–2000 looks back to the explosion of innovative textile-based art on the Canadian Prairies during the second half of the twentieth century.

With a focus on weaving and other interlace practices, such as rug hooking and crochet, the exhibition examines how artists of diverse backgrounds wove new histories of fibre during a period of intense energy and collective creativity.

This touring exhibition, a collaboration between Nickle Galleries (Calgary, AB) and the MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina, SK), features sixty artworks by forty-eight artists and draws on public and private collections from across Canada.

Curated by Michele Hardy, PhD (Nickle Galleries, University of Calgary), Timothy Long (Head Curator, MacKenzie Art Gallery) and Julia Krueger, PhD (Independent Curator).

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

Join us in celebrating the opening of this exhibition with a Rawlco Radio and MacKenzie Art Gallery Free Admission Day! 

Enjoy free admission from 11 AM – 5:30 PM on Saturday, 4 November. Learn about the exhibition through guided tours and art activities for the whole family.
