Major contemporary textile art exhibition brings together 17 South Asian artists from across the world for the first time at British Textile Biennial 2023

Fragments of Our Time is a contemporary textile art exhibition featuring South Asian artists brought together for the first time from the UK, USA, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh. Curated by Uthra Rajgopal for British Textile Biennial, these artworks consider sustainability in the context of the environment, economics, and society. The materials, techniques and concepts highlight themes of labour, networks, migration, spiritual and emotional connections to textiles. From natural fibres and natural dyes to found objects, discarded clothing and debris, this exhibition presents an extraordinary display of woven, stitched, dyed, collaged, and felted artworks, ranging from the immersive to the delicate.

29 September – 10 December 2023 at The Whitaker Museum and Art Gallery
