Stitched Narratives exhibition opens April 9, 2015

The Kule Institute for Advanced Study is proud to sponsor:

Stitched Narratives exhibition – April 9, 2015, to February 19, 2016
Human Ecology Gallery, Human Ecology Building, University of Alberta East Campus, Edmonton, Alberta

Dr. Anne Bissonnette, Larisa Cheladyn, Stephanie Huolt, Robyn Stobbs and Sarah Woodyard co-curators as part of the graduate course “Material Culture and Curatorship” (HECOL 668)

Stitched objects communicate powerful ideas to those who understand a needle’s language. Though they speak differently than words on a page, seamstresses’ and embroiderers’ creations are rich in cultural, historical, and social meaning. “Stitched Narratives” explores these modes of expression, unraveling hand sewing’s complex stories. From eighteenth-century gowns and quilted textiles that speak of a highly organized and skilled labour force to twentieth-century garments that link the present to the past to remember a journey of immigration, the exhibition tells woven tales and showcases the hand’s many talents.

Sponsored by The Kule Institute for Advanced Study and The Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives.

Opening reception April 9, 2015, from 5 to 6 pm
