'Performing Textiles' is an exhibition featuring new work by students from the Victorian College of the Arts’ Honours in Fine Art (Visual Art) program.

Following a competitive selection process, 10 student artists were chosen to develop new works in response to a curatorial theme exploring the interconnection between textile and performance in contemporary art.

The exhibition highlights interdisciplinary perspectives and investigates the interwoven roles of fabric, fashion and the body – as both material force and form.

Artists: Jack Coventry, Ceardai Demelza, Hannah Gartside, Carla Milentis, Kiah Pullens, Scotty So, Tina Stefanou, Bronte Stolz, Jennifer Valender, Hayley van Ree.

'Performing Textiles' is a collaboration between the Ian Potter Museum of Art and Faculty of Fine Art and Music, University of Melbourne and is supported by a Victorian College of the Arts Foundation Engagement Grant.

'Performing Textiles' is part of The Potter’s 2019 'Inside Out' program, generously supported by Peter Jopling AM QC, Andy Zhang and Calvin Huang.
