Exhibition: Following The Thread
17. June @ 10:30 - 10. September @ 18:003€
This exhibition of new work celebrates the adventurous spirit and rich heritage of women who make art through the medium of fabric and stitch. They are not only part of a long tradition, but also produce new forms of artistic expression with very individual signatures.
Though many of the artists take quiltmaking techniques as their starting point, their work is extremely diverse and does not necessarily conform to the traditional definition of a quilt. Each artist is free to ‘follow the thread’ in her own way as can be seen very well once again in this exhibition. Some experiment with colour, dyeing and printing, unusual materials or three dimensions. Some works are at the cutting edge of technology, using digitally programmed embroidery or photographic techniques. Others limit themselves to fabric and thread and believe that their expressive potential is far from exhausted. All are united by a passion for fabric, stitch, colour and texture and the limitless creative and expressive possibilities of the textile surface.
