Quilting Together: Studies of Communal Quilting
Where:- Temporary Contemporary Gallery, Queensgate Market, Huddersfield
When:- Mon 24 June – Sat 13 July
Contact:- firstname.lastname@example.org / #perrennicola
The Quilting Together exhibition presents a selection of quilts and drawings made by Nicola Perren in response to a series of hand-made quilts made by the Meltham Quilting Bee, the experience of being a part of this group of makers and an investigation into amateurism.
Key concepts explored within the exhibition are amateur, communal making and autonomy.
As a part of the exhibition, a new quilt will be constructed and all visitors (no experience necessary) will be invited to do some hand sewing and contribute to the quilt making (if they wish).
The Laudry Pile
Looking beyond the everyday mundanities of doing the laundry, The Laundry Pile brings together a range of work from a small group of fashion activists, theorists and researchers. It includes a mix of photography, garments, illustration and performance to explore the relationship between laundry, fashion and nature, and questions how we can collectively tackle these issues.
