Threads: Women’s History Month
06 March – 11 March 2018
Private View: Tuesday 6 March 6-9pm
Curated by Renee Rilexie
‘Our lives as women contain many threads. Some run through time, connecting us to our past selves and pointing a way towards the future.
Others are the threads that weave us together with our family and friends. And there are also the threads of memory, of those we have loved from near and from far, and of those we have lost.
In Women’s History Month, the Threads exhibition reaches out beyond the boundaries of national borders, language, culture and belief, inviting participants to choose a thread from the wide tapestry of their lives and gently unravel it to release its meaning, wisdom and secrets.’
