Migrations:  Image: Jessica Hemmings
Yesterday was the final showing of the Migrations exhibition at the Australian Design Centre in Sydney.  This exhibition was curated by Professor Jessica Hemmings, author of the book my work was featured in last year, Cultural Threads.

I hope you got to see it as there were a few works in the exhibition that were made by artists not featured in the book, such as the printed textiles of Toril Johannessen from her Unlearning Optical Illusions series inspired by wax resist cloths, and Godfried Donkor, whose video work explores his mother's collection of wax-resist prints and the naming of them. I was fortunate to meet both Toril and Godfried in London last year when I attended  and spoke at the book launch and one day symposium.
