Ásgerður Búadóttir THREADS OF ART

THREADS OF ART
12.9.2020 – 24.1.2021, Listasafn Íslands

The centenary of the birth of textile artist Ásgerður Búadóttir provides a welcome opportunity to explore weaving and textile art in contemporary Icelandic art, and how artists have used the versatile medium of fibres: spinning, dyeing, weaving and shaping them in countless ways. Textile is an extensive art form with a long history, and a multitude of specialised techniques that generally demand great skill and expertise. Today textile art is a flourishing field both in Iceland and elsewhere, and younger generations of artists have taken a keen interest in the medium of fibre and yarn, partly reflecting the blurring of boundaries between different artistic media in recent decades. The work of many contemporary artists also displays experimental approaches and subverts the conventional methods of textile art, showing us how long-standing artistic tradition can attain new dimensions.
