This exhibition presents a selection of tapestries from the world famous Victorian Tapestry Workshop, and is the major visual arts component of the 2005 Singapore Arts Festival. The Victorian Tapestry Workshop has in its 30 year history transformed the age-old tradition of weaving into a vibrant, contemporary art form. It attracts international and Australian artists and collectors, resulting in an output of exceptional contemporary tapestries now numbering in the hundreds. The Art of Collaboration includes tapestries designed by Patrick Heron, David Larwill, Geoff Ricardo, John Coburn, and Merrin Eirth as well as Singapore artists Eng Tow, Goh Beng Kwan, Ian Woo, Jeremy Ramsey and Simon Wong.
