Alice Springs Beanie Festival
At the Chan Contemporary Art Space:
A national touring exhibition featuring the Alice Springs Beanie Festival, presented by Artback NT: Arts Development and Touring. Colours of the Country III celebrates the creativity and imagination that has become synonymous with the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. The exhibition elevates the humble Beanie to an art form and displays the fine craftsmanship and flair of beanie makers across the country. It inspires audiences to laugh, don crazy headwear and bring out the knitting needles. Jo Nixon and key beanie artisans will travel to Darwin to attend the opening and provide floor talks and beanie workshops that will allow Darwin audiences to experience the beanie craze for themselves!
