Day Trip to Entangled at Turner Contemporary, Margate

April 26, 2017

Join us for a curator-led tour of Entangled: Threads & Making -- a major exhibition of sculpture, installation, tapestry, textiles and jewellery from the early 20th century to the present day.  It features over 40 international female artists who expand the possibilities of embroidery, weaving, sewing and wood carving, often incorporating unexpected materials such as plants, clothing, hair and bird quills.  The exhibition brings together artists from different generations and cultures who challenge established categories of craft, design and fine art, and who share a fascination with the handmade and the processes of making itself.  Artists in the exhibition include Phyllida Barlow, Louise Bourgeois, Kiki Smith, Annette Messager as well as younger artists including Karla Black and Samara Scott.
