New exhibition by artist and Cass Textiles course leader James Hunting.
The Cass is delighted to announce Queering Space, an exhibition by artist and Textiles BA Course Leader James Hunting which will take place in the Atrium of the school’s Goulston Street building from the 30th January until the 12th February.
James who has been working with textiles for over thirty years, and teaching for over fifteen says he ‘questions the norms and challenges traditions’ in both. He believes that creative identities are formed by understanding, investigating and then taking ownership of techniques and processes. His work explores ideas of personal identity, inclusion, the 'other' and desire, using textile processes such as print and hand stitch. Drawing underpins his practice, and the act of making is integral to the outcome. Speaking about the use of Textiles in Queering Space, he said, ‘Cloth without function disrupts and disturbs- it demands of the viewer, it imposes questions and it opens possibilities.’
Queering Space opens with a Private View event on Thursday 30 January from 5.45pm.
