Dare to Differ 2022

A whole gallery exhibition of contemporary quilts presented by the
Quilters’ Guild of South Australia and Brother International (Australia)

This exhibition features a juried selection of contemporary art quilts from textile artists all around Australia. The aim is to present the transformation in contemporary quilting by extending the limits of art textiles, quilt making and the courage to “Dare to Differ”. Entries were preselected from photos – one of the whole quilt and one detail. The selection process was done by two or more contemporary quilt artists with an international standing.

Dare to Differ” exhibitions are held bi-annually, and originated after a small group came together in South Australia more than 20 years ago with the aim of promoting and showcasing contemporary art quilts in this state.

2022 exhibition timetable

Gallery M is a versatile exhibition venue, that can have up to four exhibitions running concurrently.
This is achieved by utilising large free standing walls, that can be configured to create quarter, half or whole gallery spaces.
