This year’s Hard Twist offers the opportunity to get in touch with your inner textile aficionado – to knit your brows over the lint portraits, attempt to unravel the meaning of the stockinette-stitch QR codes, get tied up with a game of cat’s cradle or wound up over whether the embroidery that’s giving you the finger is a political statement or a personal insult. But whatever you do, however you feel, you must try the bee beard!
Hard Twist is an annual juried show of work that celebrates the intimate, layered and complex relationship between people and textile, has become an important annual event within the Canadian fibre art community and a signature event for the Gladstone since 2006.
Each year, co-curators Helena Frei and Chris Mitchell weave this wild diversity into a rich and complex tapestry inhabited by a powerful sense of human creativity.
