Cotton, Labour, Land & Body Exhibition
Wednesday 21st September 2022 to Saturday 4th March 2023
Crafts Council Gallery, LondonBack
Through textiles, films and works on paper, this exhibition explores how one of the world's most ubiquitous materials has shaped the relationship between Britain and South Asia.
Featuring the work of four outstanding artists, Raisa Kabir, Brigid McLeer, Bharti Parmar and Reetu Satta, this new exhibition at the Crafts Council Gallery uncovers the material connections between Britain and South Asia. Discover films, textiles and works on paper that collectively question our relationship with cotton, highlighting untold stories and forgotten histories.
Supported by the Bagri Foundation. In partnership with The Super Slow Way and the British Textile Biennial.
In this exhibition, visitors will be taken on an expedition across time, geographies, cultures and traditions, uncovering multi-generational connections between Britain and South Asia through the cotton industry in Lancashire. Featuring work by artists Raisa Kabir, Brigid McLeer, Bharti Parmar and Reetu Sattar commissioned by the British Textile Biennial 2021, it captures the impact of cotton production on labour, land and the body.
The gallery is free to attend and is open Wednesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm.
