About the exhibition

Vision 2020 is an upcoming travelling exhibition of forty 50x50cm textile works interpreting the theme of vision on tour in 2020/2021. There are 40 artists involved, as listed below, from Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Europe.

Vision 2020 is the fourth touring exhibition by Brenda Gael Smith as an independent curator. She has a proven track record in delivering high quality, engaging exhibits that have been exhibited in regional galleries across Australia and textile events internationally. See:

As with the curator's previous exhibitions, each work will be a uniform size creating an cohesive display and showcasing a diverse range of techniques and materials. 

A full gallery will be posted online in early April 2020 but is available upon request. Please see the Preview Gallery that is updated weekly in the lead up to the exhibition premiere:

The exhibition is currently available in the following periods:

  • 1 March - 7 April 2020;
  • 22 April - 1 July 2020; and
  • 1 February – 31 July 2021.

Approximately 14 metres (double row) or 28 metres (single row) of linear space is optimal for the exhibit (including signage). Other layouts are possible.
