THE EVENT OF A THREAD. KUWAIT EDITION. Sheik Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Center 8. Dezember 2018 – 12. Januar 2019
The exhibition highlights complex ways in which artists work with textiles, where art encounters handicraft, traditions meet the present day, and local knowledge intersects with global relationships. Visitors will also learn about the traditional textile techniques that were appropriated, abstracted, relocated and brought back to life by the artists. So this is an exhibition particularly interesting for a country like Kuwait with its age-old tradition of Sadu-weaving.
