By a thread

‘By a thread’ explores the dualities in fibre art – from associations with gender and domesticity to arguments of its legitimacy as an art form, and its politicisation as an agent for change. The power of the art form can be ascribed to its unique and intrinsic non-neutrality. The exhibition includes work from artists who approach fibre practices from varied backgrounds; they include, Anna Dunnill, Graziela Guardino, Aerial Morallos, Al Munro, Mylyn Nguyen, Chloe Smith (I Make Soft Food), Nina Walton, and Lisa Woolfe.
