Ctrl/Shift Exhibition 21 July to 9 September
Ctrl/Shift Preview Friday 20 July 6 to 8pm
The 2018 exhibition for the 62 Group is Ctrl/Shift at MAC in Birmingham. Ctrl/Shift will take shifts and changes as its theme, in particular it is centred on artists whose practice is or has transformed, in small or large ways, especially towards expressions of innovation in textile art. These shifts may be around changing attitudes to control; the introduction of new materials and techniques; and/or the impact of innovative ideas and evolving technologies.
The exhibition therefore offers an opportunity for participating artists to explore projects which manifest as transformations in their practice. Ctrl/Shift is intended as a convincing demonstration of
the contemporary relevance and unique ability of textile and fibre arts to allow artists to explore complex themes, and to expand their practice.
The exhibition concept has been developed in partnership with the 62 Group and independent curator Liz Cooper.

Alongside the exhibition 62 Group members will be running workshops and a talk/tour of the exhibition. Dates for these will be announced soon.
