Twisted: Knitting on the edge.
Oct 05, 2006
Twisted: knitting on the edge is curated by Kirsty Hall.
From October 3 - October 31.
October sees an exciting new exhibition opening at Bristol’s innovative Here Gallery. Timed to coincide with National Knitting Week (which takes place between the 14th and 21st October), Twisted: Knitting On The Edge is a group exhibition featuring 15 artists who are exploring the subversive potential of knitting.
The resurgence of knitting has been one of the big stories in craft in the last few years and this exhibition shows that contemporary artists are increasingly turning to knitting as both medium and inspiration. From the disturbing and challenging to the witty and unusual, freelance curator Kirsty Hall has chosen a diverse selection of work that includes sculpture, photography, book art, drawing and animation.
