Symposium: The Matter of Material

27 Apr 2017

It is now almost 35 years since Sarat Maharaj asked the question “Textile Art- Who Are You?” describing textile art as "'undecidable'...something that seems to belong to one genre but overshoots its border and seems no less at home in another."

This symposium will explore the use of fabric in art, from the 20th century to the present day. Speakers include Entangled: Threads & Making curator Karen Wright and artist Freddie Robbins.
