Stitch in Time:
The Fabric of Contemporary Life
Anni Albers, Sarah Browne, Jeremy Deller, Sissi Farassat, Angela Fulcher, Grayson Perry, Slavs and Tatars.
Curated by Chris Clarke and Fiona Kearney
From protest banners to embroidered passports, abstract fabric designs to narrative tapestries, Stitch in Time demonstrates how artists employ textiles and its associations of a popular, vernacular culture to shape and comment on contemporary life.
Beginning with the groundbreaking work of Bauhaus artist, Anni Albers, the exhibition included sensitive depictions of social and political issues as well as considered explorations of how fabrics can be deployed in new and imaginative ways.
The exhibition catalogue accompanying this exhibition is now out of print.
