The Textile Museum of Canada presents rotating exhibitions, changed throughout the year. Exhibitions draw from TMC’s collection of 13,000 objects and present the work of local, national and international contemporary artists. The TMC also hosts touring exhibitions and guest curators through various partnerships and collaborations.
