Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Paul Yore is exhibiting in the 6th Rijkswik Textile Biennial held in Rijkswik, Netherlands.

Just as in the Textile Biennial of 2017, the majority of these artists make work that comments on contemporary issues. Australian Paul Yore expresses through activism. His appliquéd placards protest and comment on issues of gender, abuse by the Church, consumerism and white superiority ideologies.

You can also see Paul Yore’s work at the 16th International Triennial of Tapestry held in Lodz, Poland. The watchword of the 16th edition, “Breaching Borders”, refers to the issues of the modern world, which redefine the meaning of the identity of our civilisation, ethnic groups, social groups or each of us individually. Yore is one of 32 artists chosen to participate in the triennial.
