Threads Exhibition

The Gallery of Modern Art currently has a small exhibition about contemporary textiles and the social fabric.  There are a few representative pieces from different forms of textile creations - quilts, clothes, tapa...and the idea behind the exhibition is an interesting one - how threads and what they create carry personal and cultural narratives.  The stitching on some embroider pieces is so fine
Photography was allowed, which I appreciate, even though I end up buying the catalogue anyway.  This piece had holes ritualistically punched into the canvas by the artist's father, and she then drew the "threads".
