Bite size was an exhibition of contemporary textiles to mark 15 years of collaboration between the UK and Japan through Lesley Millar and the University for the Creative Arts (UCA). The significance of this exhibition lies in its focus on the importance of continuity when building successful relationships between communities.
"The exhibition both embodies and celebrates the realisation of meaningful and creative dialogue between textile practitioners, writers, critics, universities and the general public in Japan and the UK which has been developed over 15 years."
Lesley Millar, Curator.
51 artists from the UK and Japan created miniature works, each work had the maximum size of 25cm in any direction. The artists were those who have taken part in the projects organised by Professor Lesley Millar and the University for the Creative Arts and was the first time ever that the works from all these practitioners have been seen together. The exhibition was held at The Daiwa Anglo Japanese Foundation in London and in Japan at Gallery Gallery Kyoto, and Nagoya University for the Arts.
