Out of Fashion—Textiles in Contemporary Art Exhibit

April 09, 2013 BY CAPSULESNEWS

From April 5 to June 30, Gl Holtegaard art gallery will present the exhibition, Out of Fashion—Textiles in Contemporary Art. Including artists such as Gudrun Hasle, Erwin Wurm, and Cosima von Bonin, this exhibition will showcase the link between clothes and art—especially portraying handcraft designs as a predominantly female occupation. As one of the oldest and most colorful materials, textiles have provided expression for the most intimate parts of our daily life. In recent years, crochet work, embroidery, and sewing have become synonymous with rebel-art; female artists use their craft skills to invoke social and political messages.
