Event description
Interwoven Histories explores the intricate connections between textile and marginalised histories through the lens of contemporary art.

About this event

The exhibition shows works by artists who each engage with textile as a medium and mediator to (re)tell the narratives of movement and migration, of protest and emancipation, of labour, care and repair, of political turmoil and resistance, intertwined with personal memories. Interwoven Histories probes the ways in which we read and write ‘history’ along the edges; proposing a concept of history as a multi-layered fabric consisting of different and at times conflicting threads and of entanglements that continue to shape our realities today.

Curated by: Christel Vesters

With works by: Mounira Al Solh, Fatima Barznge, Feministische Handwerk Partij, Antonio José Guzman & Iva Jankovic, Patricia Kaersenhout, Mila Lanfermeijer, Jennifer Tee, Vincent Vulsma, and Sheila Hicks.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a public programme and catalogue.

Touch/Trace: Researching Histories Through Textiles unravels the intricate connections between textile, history and society from a contemporary art perspective. It explores how textile objects bear witness to and can transmit information about the time and place they were made in and simultaneously open up new perspectives onto those histories.
