Threads and Tensions: The Interconnected World

Threads and Tensions: The Interconnected World is a collective of stories and histories told through the medium of fabric, painting and other textures by artists around the globe during one of the most unpredictable times in the modern era. The current experiences woven into the works form the fabric of society and illuminate the complex world we live in. As these myriad narratives loom and engage in an open dialogue within the space, the threads of interconnectivity and tensions of these cosmopolitan cities are revealed in tangible ways.
