Spinning East Asia Series II: A Net (Dis)entangled
Titled A Net (Dis)entangled, the exhibition and second chapter of the Spinning East Asia Series features 16 groups of artists based in East Asia, or whose creative research revolves around East Asian topics. The participating artists approached their work with an open mind and from various angles with regards to textile culture, from its materiality, associated techniques, to subject matters and more.
