Swedish School of Textiles graduate exhibition 2021
The Material Meetings exhibition of the graduate students in textile design impressively demonstrates the role of design and material knowledge in tackling the complexity of our life today. The exhibited works exemplify how advanced artistic skills and textile methodology can challenge conventional perspectives on textile expressiveness and the surrounding materiality.
The students address themes such as bio-design, digitalisation, inclusiveness and challenging beliefs and traditions. These are shaped to be experienced through a textile lens, where the richness of colours, patterns, materials and textile techniques enable the viewer to envision novel perspectives on living.
