• Cloth & Culture Now

Robins, Freddie, 2007, Show, Exhibition or Event, Cloth & Culture Now

Abstract or Description:

Cloth & Culture Now investigates the links between contemporary textile practice, strong traditional practice and overlapping global influences, offering a framework for the study of contemporary textile practice within a cultural specific, trans-national and cross-cultural context. The exhibition brings together, for the first time, contemporary textile works from Estonia, Finland, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania and United Kingdom. Exhibited two works, "The Perfect - Alex" and "The Perfect - Emilie, Annette, Marie, Cecile and Yvonne".
The exhibition generated press including extensive previews in ‘Embroidery’ and ‘Textile Forum’ with reviews in ‘Crafts’ and ‘Modern, Carpets and Textiles for Interiors’.
At the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester I delivered a public lecture and workshop.
