Turner Contemporary Unveils ‘Entangled: Threads & Making’
A new exhibition opening at Turner Contemporary, Margate brings together over 40 international artists from several generations who explore a diverse range of materials and techniques. Curated by writer and critic Karen Wright, 'Entangled: Threads & Making' celebrates making processes through an all-woman line up of artists including Anni Albers and Hannah Ryggen, Ann Cathrin November Høibo, Caroline Achaintre and Kiki Smith. New pieces made especially for the exhibition include Anna Ray’s 'Margate Knot', a site-specific work produced by local Margate makers and an installation by Samara Scott in the museum’s lift that uses a combination of carpet, food colouring and yoghurt to entirely cover its walls. Victoria Pomery OBE, Turner Contemporary Director, comments: “At a time when women’s rights across the world are under threat, this is an extremely timely exhibition. Inventive, curious and experimental, all of the artists in this exhibition demonstrate innovation and creativity. The pioneering steps taken by several of the 20th century women artists in this exhibition have had huge influence on the work of successive generations, allowing contemporary artists to challenge boundaries even further.”
'Entangled: Threads & Making' is at Turner Contemporary, Margate from 28th January 2017 to 7th May 2017 and details can be found HERE.
