To accompany the current Thread exhibition at elysium gallery, we are hosting a free online symposium on Saturday 2nd October between 3-6pm which will be a selection of conversations with contemporary textile artists.
Thread is gathering of artists from different cultures and lived experiences sharing common ground; an overwhelming interest in the very stuff of textile practice, of lives lived in and though the literal and metaphoric language of thread. Each artist recognising the potential of one drawn out, spun out, teased out fibre in both singular and multiple forms to perform as storyteller, witness, soothsayer, and to be simultaneously capable of healing and harm.
