Intersections celebrates the breadth of creative collaborations in textile design research.
Centred around the four themes of textiles and architecture, textiles and interactions, textile materialities and processes, as well as critical textiles, this exhibition considers the powerful role of cross- or interdisciplinary collaborations to advance research in the field of textiles. From novel material surfaces, data interfaces and social innovation to wearable technology, the built environment and the circular economy - the future of textiles is here to explore and to address the issues we encounter today.
