Context in Textiles
13th November 2018 - 5th January 2019
(noun) circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood.
This exhibition highlights the use of textiles in art and the way in which we use art to convey messages.
On display is the Dartford PROCESSIONS flag that formed part of a mass participation artwork which celebrated one hundred years of votes for women in June 2018, alongside the very talented students from North Kent College who have taken this opportunity to exhibit some of their work.
North Kent College tell us:
"The work on display encapsulates our student's curiosity and playful approach to traditional textiles techniques and processes. They are encouraged to experiment and push the boundaries of what the study of textiles is and can be. The resulting work is often of an experimental nature with many of the pieces in the exhibition coming from testing and trialling an unusual combination of materials and techniques".
