The Istanbul Modern presents an exhibition that delves into textile as a tool of artistic expression, featuring objects, paintings, installations, archive materials, and video works from 25 international contemporary artists. They create aesthetic and cultural narratives through their work.
Organised in collaboration with Germany’s Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations, this exhibition began in Dresden and continued to Kuwait before arriving in Istanbul, and has picked up contributions from each stop along the way thanks to local curators.
