A thread is both a connecting force leading us from one thing to the next and a material from which something is yet to be made. It can help us re-imagine and reconfigure our relationships with one another and the time and space we inhabit.
Explore thread as a method and metaphor for connection, collaboration and conversation in this exhibition curated by the 2023 cohort of Whitechapel Gallery and LSBU’s MA in Curating Art and Public Programmes.
Starting with a selection of works from artists who interpret thread as a central theme within their work, this exhibition also ties together the outcomes from a series of workshops and performances which invited public participation in the run-up to the opening of the project, centering collaboration at the core of the exhibition. 
Spend time reading zines from an artist-curated library, or delve deeper into the subject matter of the show through audio clips and interactive, finger-knitting activities.
