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 the history of the Macarthur region and how this informs their view of the future. In celebration of MTN’s origins, the exhibition will also premiere a collaborative textile exchange project undertaken with women from the Focus Connect Multicultural Women’s Art Group.
