The five artists featured in this exhibition drew inspiration from textile techniques and patterns, which they transpose to other mediums and materials to bring fabric out of its traditional domestic world and imbue it with the social concerns we face today. Whether they tackle social issues, cultural characteristics, or feminism, the artists create the threads of their stories of the present from knowledge of the past.
In conjunction with the Threads exhibition, Shelley Miller will be in residence in the Project Room with Taking Space.
Artists: Myriam Dion, Surabhi Ghosh, Diane Meyer, Shelley Miller and Sarah Thibault
