About

Iniva's Senior Curator and Research Associate Grant Watson gives insights into the Social Fabric exhibition. In the Social Fabric exhibition textiles are used to explore labour, capital, colonialism and international trade. In the 19th Century Karl Marx's account of the cotton industry tracked fifty years of boom and bust and the effects this had on workers in Britain and its colonies (and in particular India). Social Fabric cross references historical and contemporary accounts, focusing on works by two artists Sudhir Patwardhan and Alice Creischer, presented alongside extensive archival material. Social Fabric is an exhibition in which textiles are used to explore colonial history, international trade, labour and militant politics. Works by two contemporary artists Sudhir Patwardhan and Alice Creischer, are presented alongside extensive range of recent and historical archival material including Company Paintings, Indian Chintz
