‘Being through making’ describes the central role crafting and creative work play in exploring self/identity. Unravelling Queerly focuses on artists who use textile and fibrecraft to express their unique voice and unpick complex subject matter. Practices such as weaving, crochet, embroidery, quilting, and sewing have a rich history with LGBTQIA+ artists, makers and designers. These labour-intensive processes enable sharing of personal and cultural narratives and create vibrant inter-cultural, intersectional and intergenerational sites for dialogue on contemporary queerness. Unravelling Queerly champions Southern Hemisphere artists in particular who embrace, rework and push the boundaries of textile-based art and craft forms.

Alongside major exhibition Unravelling Queerly, Australian Design Centre is celebrating Sydney WorldPride with two feature solo exhibitions by craft and design practitioners and a dedicated Maker’s Market on Sunday 26 February.

Exhibition: 7 February – 22 March 
Exhibition launch: Thursday 16 February 6-8pm
Gallery hours: Tuesday-Friday 11-5pm, Saturday 11-4pm
