June 15 – October 6, 2018
Cambridge Art Galleries | Design at Riverside Gallery
Opening: Friday, June 15, 7:00pm

Following the ambitious mounting of The Whole Shebang: a research project in late 2017, Design at Riverside will showcase a selection of works from the Contemporary Fibre Collection to further the conversations of preservation and presentation of works held by Cambridge Art Galleries. Over 115 Canadian artists are represented in the permanent collection dedicated to fibre based works. In the late eighties, we decided to pursue a particular collection mandate focused on the fibre medium, partly because the region’s flourishing industrial base was originally established by the textile industry, and partly because such specialization would set us apart from other institutional collectors. The works in our permanent collection are decidedly contemporary, pushing the limits on all fronts. Take a close look at some of the installation works that live within our vault.
