Hand Over Hand: Textiles Today

Hand Over Hand: Textiles Today is a glimpse into fiber’s prevalence in contemporary art. Its current visibility is a testament

to something the discipline is capable of, that perhaps people are longing for anew: a bodily feeling of the world; an experience of ideas that enters through our skin as much as our eyes (even if, of course, we are only imagining the skin contact from sense memory).  The interface we have become so familiar with – the one on our smartphones – only transports us to further disembodiment. The threshold that is cloth, however, situates humans back inside their form. It connects us to the other, through the intelligence of our bodies. Bodies that are hungry for interconnectivity. To be utilized for knowing. Hand Over Hand: Textiles Today.
