40 WOMEN PULLING AT THE THREADS OF SOCIAL DISCOURSE- THE QUILT
EXHIBITION DATES: OCT 01 - 31 2021

‘Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse’ is an artist call for participation in a textile based group installation, consisting of equally sized, small quilted artworks displayed together to make one monumental quilt-like wall piece. 

With this installation, over 100 artists work towards unity. This exhibition celebrates differences, as we create for the common good, and facilitate dialogue using the thread and the needle. The installation is a microcosm of personal statements, honoring and intercrossing the quilting tradition to accommodate the contemporary individual voice. This monumental installation reinforces the power of ‘the group’ that changes the the fabric of society.
