Event: The Intuitive Thread
Aug 24 – Oct 27 all-day

Dear Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild of NSW,

I am contacting you from The Japan Foundation, Sydney to invite you to
our upcoming exhibition.

The Intuitive Thread introduces four textile artists from across Japan
re-interpreting traditional methods and exploring new forms of
expression. These artists remain grounded in slow, disciplined age-old
processes, while at the same time challenging convention. Dyed, woven,
printed and sewn, the work of each of these artists reflects a respect
for natural materials and a commitment to an enduring, living Japanese
aesthetic.

Curated by Eloise Rapp, the exhibition features the works of Chiharu
Ohgomori, Masako Kikuchi, Chiho Sasaki and Misako Nakahira.

We warmly invite you to join us for the opening reception on Friday
August 24, 2018 at 6:00pm at The Japan Foundation, Sydney, with an
address from the curator at 6:30pm. Doors open at 5:30pm and
refreshments will be served. Attendance is free and bookings are not
necessary.

The exhibition itself runs from August 24 until October 27, 2018 and AN
EVENT PROGRAM, FEATURING FILM, TALK AND WORKSHOP, WILL RUN IN
CONJUNCTION WITH THE EXHIBITION. PLEASE CHECK THE JPF EVENT PAGE FOR
UPDATES.
