Hard Twist 6 – Obsession Co-curators Helena Frei and Chris Mitchell invite artists to submit textile and fibre based works, which reflect or explore obsessive ideas, acts, or fixations through medium, technique, or concept.

There are only three criteria;

Work must:

•actively address the theme of Obsession
•be designed to hang on a wall or be suspended from a ceiling – we are unable to accept free standing work due to the nature of the exhibition space Hard Twist has become an important annual event within the Canadian textile art community as well as being a signature event for the Gladstone. For this sixth anniversary of Hard Twist, exhibition space will include public spaces on all four floors of the hotel.
