New exhibition: Following the Thread
Following the Thread is the first exhibition of new work by Quilt Art since the pandemic caused a four-year gap in their exhibition programme. The exhibition celebrates the creativity and diversity of the artists, who are united by their passion for fabric and stitch and the limitless expressive possibilities of the textile surface. Each artist ‘follows the thread’ in her own way.
17l06 - 10.09 2023, Esch-sur-Sûre, Luxembourg,
Material Evidence and Traces
This exhibition celebrates the adventurous spirit and rich heritage of women artists who make art through quilting and textiles, and in particular that of our pioneering and influential founder member Mary Fogg, who died in 2016 at the age of 95. Each member of the group will take a unique approach to her legacy to create exciting, cutting-edge work which aims to transcend people’s ideas of what a ‘quilt’ is.
A smaller related exhibition entitled Traces will also be available in 2019-22.
The exhibitions will be accompanied by a book showcasing all the works.
