As more contemporary artists incorporate traditional craft processes into their practice, weaving is experiencing an international resurgence. The tapestries in New Art of the Loom are not merely decorative or functional; the artists explore a broad range of themes from cultural identity and formalism to storytelling and history through a labor-intensive medium. Featuring 24 tapestries by artists from 16 different countries, this exhibition illuminates the continuing and dynamic tradition of the loom in contemporary artistic practice worldwide.

Artists: Christina Altona, Malgorzata Buczek, Thomas Cronenberg, Thomas Ewen, Susan Hart Henegar, Barbara Heller, Dirk Holger, Susan Iverson, William Kentridge, Lialia Kuchma, Ulrika Leaner, Jean Lurçat, Susan Martin Maffei, Sayed Mahmoud, Ann Naustdal, Inge Nørgaard, Lorna-Ramlochan-singh, Jon-Eric Riis, Bum Soo Song, Miyuki Tatsumi, Joyce Tien, Henriette Zegers ten Hom
