The Australian Tapestry Workshop (ATW) has revealed the finalists of the 2016 ATW Tapestry Design Prize for Architects.
The prize, which was only launched last year, calls architects to design a site-specific tapestry, which this year is to be hypothetically located at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, designed by Col Madigan.
Thirteen tapestry designs have been shortlisted by a panel of judges made up of Professor Kay Lawrence (chair, University of South Australia), John Denton (Denton Corker Marshall), Brian Zulaikha (Tonkin Zulaikha Greer), Julie Ewington (curator and arts writer), Kieran Wong (CODA) and Alice Hampson (Alice Hampson Architects).
The shortlisted designs will be displayed at an exhibition opening on 30 August.
