Hard Twist 8 – Opening Reception

January 23, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Hard Twist 2014 – This is Personal

The Gladstone Hotel’s 8th Annual Juried Textile and Fibre Arts Exhibition

Hard Twist 8: This is Personal showcases works exploring the nuances, complexities and politics of that which is individual, private and intimate.

Cloth is personal. Cloth speaks of the person cocooned in successive layers of textile that communicate who they are, that tell of their dreams and aspirations. And occasionally betray their secrets.

Radiating out from underwear – intensely personal, usually hidden, and sometimes surprising – through the various layers that signal origins, social position, hopes, fears, sexuality and aspirations, Hard Twist 8 – This Is Personal encompasses the gamut of the human with signals wrapped in cloth.

The opening weekend of Hard Twist 8 – This is Personal will coincide with the Gladstone Hotel’s 11th annual alternative design event, Come Up To My Room!

Please go HERE for full participant list, jury list and more info!
