Girls Only Exhibition: Put the Text in Textiles

16.06.2015 | Art | BY:

Girls Only, the transatlantic art collective, are hosting an exhibition in London that opens today. Put The Text In Textiles will feature the work of Zoe Buckman, Rahill Jamalifard, Tatiana Kartomten and Elbe Koe, to name a few and focuses on the use of words and phrases in contemporary artworks, such as printed fabrics, quilting, knitted wool, embroidery, or painted clothing as material.

You’ll find nomadic American wanderer Jackie Sugarlumps’ jacket emblazoned with the motto “Don’t Bring Me Down;” and the Badlands 777 girls’ collaborative painted Elvis biker jacket, as well as others such as Elbe Koe’s deconstructed and re-collaged pink coat that recalls a peak in her development as an artist.

British curator Antonia Marsh founded Girls Only to support female artists and give them a studio space, voice and place to collaborate. We previously met Marsh to find out more about her projects that encourage collaboration and conversation (read the interview here).

Put the Text in Textiles is open June 16th-20th at 92 Picadilly, London W1J.
