DRAAD preview Jonas Verbeke LR 1

Group exhibition Draad opens in Kortrijk textile museum Texture

From January 27 through February 18, 2024, at Museum Texture, you can discover, admire and experience how multifaceted the world of textile art is. The group exhibition 'Draad' collects stories from thirty artists, in an intriguing mix of techniques, materials and interpretations. 'Draad' is a celebration of the creative freedom of textiles.

Every day we come into contact with textiles: think of the sheets we sleep in, the towels we use to dry ourselves or the clothes we wear on our skin. We have a long and personal history with textiles. It is one of the oldest materials known to mankind, it is one of the first forms of technology we ever developed.

From Jan. 27 to Feb. 18, 2024, the exhibition Draad reveals just that versatility of textiles. Thirty stories by as many artists(duos) gathered in one expo, each work weaves a narrative thread that invites you to wonder and dialogue. Thus, Draad forms a quest for identity and a visual representation of socio-critical issues.
