Hi, I hope it's OK to post this here, it is knitting related so it's not too much like spam (I hope).
Would you believe it, in the midst of organising this, I've run out of yarn on my current project! Complete disaster! I don't have any work in the show, I'm just organising it this time around, but my knitting was the only thing that was keeping me sane. Wibble, wibble...
Anyway, I hope some of you will be able to come along, there's some really exciting work in the show.
TWISTED: KNITTING ON THE EDGE
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.
From a life-size burka made from hand-spun human hair to a knitted straitjacket, this exhibition is bound to surprise!
The Opening is on Tuesday 3rd October from 7.30 – 10 pm and everyone is welcome to attend. Several of the artists will be there, including one all the way from Holland. If you can’t make the opening, the exhibition runs from Tuesday 3rd October to Tuesday 31st October and the gallery is open from Tuesday – Saturday 12.30 – 6.30 pm
