Sammanfattning

The artists included in the Cultural Threads exhibition share an interest in understanding how the past global trade of textiles portends many current realities: gross inequalities in the distribution of wealth; material value exceeding the cost of human life; and the restless movement of materials, people and labour that underpins textile production. Contemporary textile practice cannot escape the realities of the proceeding centuries, realities Joseph McBrinn observes were “marked by both a rampant and ruthless European imperialism as well as an astonishing revolution in textile facture and consumption.” Today the long shadow of the colonial era continues to play a significant role in the complex meaning of contemporary textiles. McBrinn warns that historical advances in textile production “often masked appropriation or exploitation” of textile labour, concluding that “in the modern age any, and indeed every, textile became inscribed with the entwined histories of colonialism and capitalism.” The production and trade of textiles has both fuelled and communicated human desire for wealth, expansion and change for centuries.
