I visited the Art_Textiles exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery. It was a real treat to wander through galleries filled with sculpted and challenging textiles.
Here’s a couple of the works that caught my attention.
Faith Wilding’s Crocheted Environment (Womb Room). I was able to step right inside the webs and shapes. If you are interested in her work you might want to read this article from the New York Times 1995 Women’s work is sometimes done
Mary Sibande’s Sophie Velucia and Madame CJ Walker was particularly striking.
