Stitches and power
An exhibition about women's work, textile recycling, the body and memory.
9 October 2022 – 22 January 2023

Stitches and Power is a tribute to the hands of women who throughout the ages have provided humanity with garments, with narrative weaves and domestic textiles. The hands behind these works have been virtually invisible, taken for granted, and predominantly unpaid. Even so, needle and thread have served as a way to tell stories about life, about belonging, about conflicts and about love. Textile works have reflected society at large but have also been a way of reproducing personal and everyday stories. The exhibition Stitches and Power presents contemporary artists’ ways of relating to textiles as expression and puts perspective on our present time and its challenges.

Participating artists: Jan van Esch, Charlotte Gyllenhammar, Hanna Holmgren, Tarik Kiswanson, Matilda Kenttä
From the collection: Louise Bourgeois, Britta Marakatt-Labba
