Brett Alexander is an artist, teacher and researcher from University of Newcastle in Australia. And a good friend. We met for the first time 1997 at a fiber workshop in Sweden. Since then we have been at textile art events in China, Lithuania, Australia, The Netherlands…and maybe some other country too. Ten years ago I was invited as a research visitor to his university, and three years ago Brett was guest researcher at University of Gothenburg, HDK, for a month or so.
And now he is back for three months at GU and it feels so good! He is already involved with the culture craft students at The Department of Conservation, and will later work with the textile art students at HDK.
And with his own writing.
