Metatextile: Ruptured narratives… @ Edel Assanti, Jun 9 – Aug 12

7 June 2016

The Metatextile: Ruptured Narratives, Exchanged Values group exhibition is on at London’s Edel Assanti, opening June 9 and running to August 12.

The show brings together works that are united in their employment of fabric and textiles, looking to evoke all of the varied and intimate politics that are bound up in the production of items and artworks that utilise such materials and methods.

Textiles and sculptures included in the exhibition are by Pio Abad, artist collective Slavs and Tatars, Jeremy Deller & Ed Hall, a work by Russian Constructivist, Liubov Popova from 1924, Leah Dixon and Timur Novikov among others.

See the Edel Assanti website for more information.**
