Join Jane Kidd herself as she leads a guided tour of her new exhibition, ‘Curious’, at the Textile Museum of Canada, where she will highlight her inspirations that range from global tapestry traditions to political activism. The exhibition features four recent series of works Kidd has completed, including a new series that will make its debut at this exhibition.

Jane Kidd is one of the most highly recognised tapestry weavers in Canada, and has  been producing intricate hand-woven tapestry pieces for over 30 years. Her tapestries buzz with curiosity and urgency as she creates images that reference environmental manipulations: genetic modification of seeds, deforestation, hybridization. This exhibition invites reflection on real and imagined human engineering of the natural order, alongside examples of tapestry weaving techniques through the centuries from the Textile Museum’s extensive collection.

Cost: $15, Members $12, Students $10. Pre-registration is required.
