Sensing Texture explores touch and affect through textures of East Asian textile art and fashion designs. This exhibition aims to provide a sensory experience where the viewer explores textile-making techniques and unique themes under East Asian cultural influences. Focusing on East Asian cultures and the ongoing experiment of fusing techniques and themes from both past and present, the exhibition proposes a re-introduction of contemporary East Asian art, which differs from the stereotype familiar to the western world. The exhibition features a group of young artists from China and Japan whose works include paintings, art installations, and fashion designs that evoke affect and the sense of touch of the viewer while highlighting textures of the textile. Through these works, the artists not only have exposed their inner worlds to the viewer, but also have showed the inheritance and innovation of East Asian culture. As an online exhibition, Sensing Texture challenges and redefines the kind of multisensory art-viewing experience provided by conventional physical exhibitions. The exhibition achieves sensory stimulation with an indirect tactile experience through images and sounds in a way that the viewer is encouraged to feel the texture and the touch of the artwork without physically touching it.
