In 2020 Macarthur Textile Network (MTN) celebrated their 10th anniversary, and in 2021 they present their fourth and largest biennial exhibition at C-A-C.

Looking Back, Looking Forward features new contemporary textile works by MTN artists that consider how the past impacts them, how it informs their view of the future, and how it influences and informs their work. In celebration of MTN’s origins, the exhibition also premieres a collaborative textile exchange project undertaken with women from the Focus Connect Multicultural Women’s Art Group.
