Interwoven: The Commissioned Art and Craft for Parliament House

About the book

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Parliament House, Pamille Berg AO, formerly the Art and Craft Program Coordinator for the Parliament House architects, was commissioned to write and design a book on the unique commissions to Australian artists, craftspeople, designers and makers for works in Parliament House.

Interwoven was launched at a special ceremony at Parliament House on 15 May 2013. It features more than 60 commissioned works, such as artist Arthur Boyd's design for the Great Hall Tapestry, which was woven by the Victorian Tapestry Workshop, and Papunya artist Kumantye Jagamarra's design for the 196 square metre Forecourt mosaic Possum and wallaby dreaming.

Interwoven includes special essays by Parliament House architects Romaldo Giurgola AO, Hal Guida and Pamille Berg and a foreword by the Presiding Officers. It highlights previously unpublished images of the art and craft works that are integrated into Parliament House.
