Stitched explores the ambitious, versatile and radical use of stitches in works by twentieth-century and contemporary artists including Alighiero Boetti, Tracey Emin, Sheila Hicks, Do Ho Suh, Henry Moore, Joana Vasconcelos and Francesco Vezzoli.
The exhibition presents sixteen artworks executed in a range of mediums and with a variety of techniques, from modernist practices that challenge hierarchies of high and low, to fibre art that transforms weaving into a sculptural endeavor, to feminist works that challenge stereotypes around craft and domesticity. Stitched is the first in a series of exhibitions to be held at Ordovas that explores different techniques in twentieth-century and contemporary art, often used in unexpected ways. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by art historian Maddy Henkin.
