Namibian Identity Through Textiles is a solo exhibition by Namibian Visual Artist, Lynette Diergaardt.

The exhibition is a collection of prints in search of a Namibian identity through the elements of art, i.e. pattern, repetition, colour, visual texture.

"For as long as I’ve been a student and educator there has been a search for a Namibian identity post-apartheid; and perhaps inclusive, or even excluding, of international influences through media and imported products" Lynette Diergaardt.

For the past four years the artist has been on a journey of discovery, a discovery of who we are visually as Namibians in order to collect data in the form of prints and large scale textile paintings that make up this exhibition.
