A very worthwhile book to explore. * The Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers * Cultural Threads sits comfortably between the mainstream and The Academe, occupying an intriguing intersection between worlds and migration stories ... [It] is skillfully designed with large format eye-catching imagery ... Collectively, such a text can develop new art audiences excited for the worlds of surface design and textile arts. * Surface Design Journal * I'm a huge fan of this beautifully presented and very readable book ... The large format colour images throughout the book leave me feeling that I really do understand what other selected artists have created visually - and the text is intelligent and informative but not overly dense. * Fibre Forum e-bulletin (created on behalf of TAFTA) *Reseña del editor:
Cultural Threads considers contemporary artists and designers who work at the intersection of cultures and use textiles as their vehicle. Ideas about belonging to multiple cultures, which can result in a sense of connection to everywhere and nowhere, are more pertinent to society today than ever. So too are the layers of history - often overlooked - behind the objects that make up our material world. The roots of postcolonial theory lie in literature and have, in the past, been communicated through dense academic jargon. Cultural Threads breaks with what can read as impenetrable rhetoric to show the rich visual diversity of craft and art that engages with multiple cultural influences. Many of these objects exist in an in-between world of their own, not wholly embraced by the establishments of art, nor functional objects in the conventional sense of craft. Cultural Threads is an exploration of contemporary textiles and their relationship with postcolonial culture. However, the postcolonial thinking examined here shares with craft an interest in the lived, rather than the purely theoretical, giving a very human account of the interactions in between craft and culture.
