This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.
Fabric of Society is a self-organising collective of four UK-based artists of colour. The resulting group exhibition has been woven together by an exploration of fabric and textile, occupying a temporary space in Glasgow’s Southside. Drawing on associations that fabric has with constructions of womanhood and identity, Fabric of Society creates and interrogates narratives which are – variously – personal, collective and universal. The exhibition invokes the personal stories of the individual artists involved, whilst reflecting on our broader social fabric as it gathers and stretches around us – at points enduring, at others fragmenting, unravelling, and being remade.
