Through the surface

Vigorous new developments in art and designer textiles demonstrate that techniques and materials move across and between cultures and nations.

Through the surface: collaborating artists from Britain and Japan was a major project directed by Lesley Millar, an authority on both UK and Japanese textiles. Initiated in 2002, it explored points of difference and similarity between the cultures of Britain and Japan through the ideas and working methods of textile artists. Seven young practitioners, representing outstanding talent from the new generation, travelled to work with seven major international artists in the opposite country. 

All involved made new work as a result of the experience. Twenty commissioned pieces, encompassing the fields of art, craft, fashion, interior design and architecture were created for an outstanding exhibition which toured the UK in 2004; and is showing at the National Museum of Modern Art (Kyoto) in April-May 2005. 

Seven of the works were purchased by the Contemporary Arts Society. The website has become a major research tool.
