Unravel: The Power and Politics of Textiles in Art


Why have artists been drawn to textiles to challenge power structures, transgress boundaries and reimagine the world around them?

Accompanying Unravel: The Power and Politics of Textiles in Art, this illustrated catalogue shines a light on 50 contemporary artists who – drawn to the tactile processes of stitching, weaving, braiding, beading and knotting – have explored the transformative and subversive potential of fibre and thread. Spanning intimate hand-crafted pieces to large-scale sculptural installations, the featured artworks are radical in their form and politics, speaking to stories of marginalisation and exclusion, as well as emancipatory joy and transcendence.

Co-published with Prestel, featuring original essays by Julia Bryan-Wilson, Miguel A. López and Denise Ferriera da Silva, and texts by Michelle Adler, Diego Chocano, Wells Fray-Smith, Simone de Haan, Lotte Johnson and Amanda Pinatih. Designed by Atelier Dyakova.

This catalogue contains the works of Abad, Abakanowicz, Adams, Al Solh, Amer, Arpilleristas, Azpilicueta, Barrada, Beasley, Biggers, Bourgeois, Brackens, Buić, Cabrera, Centuriо́n, Chicago, Constant, Dayrit, Emin, Gibson, Jose Guzman & Jankovic, Hammond, Hicks, Hlobo, Kerunen, Kimsooja, Leonilson, Lewis, Mahama, Margolles, Maxim, Mirga-Tas, Mukherjee, Parra, Pessoa, Pettway, Pichillá Quiacaín, Ringgold, Roberts, Ruivah, Ryggen, Self, Shonibare Cbe Ra, Su, Tawney, Vicuña, Vinoja, I-Lann, Zangewa, Zapata
