SAQA EXHIBITION / EVENT
Textile Posters (SAQA Global Exhibition) - Exhibition Park, Canberra
August 15, 2019 - August 18, 2019
SAQA’s Textile Posters brings together the familiarity of quilts with the equally familiar vernacular of posters to create a visually exciting, informative, and emotional exhibition. Selected pieces reflect the wide diversity of posters. What all have in common is an emblematic economy of text and imagery.
Posters are meant to convey a message in the blink of an eye, be it to inform, educate, or persuade. It is that particular aesthetic consideration which characterizes these textile artworks.
Some posters grab the viewer’s attention in an attempt to be heard above the incessant demands of other media. Other posters are more subtle in their approach, forcing the viewer to study the components in detail, intending to open a reflective dialogue.
