Eye of the Needle: Art, Stitch, Partnerships and Protest

Ele Carpenter will be taking part in this panel discussion around art, stitch, partnerships and protest on Monday 13th July at the British Library alongside Cornelia Parker's embroidery of the Magna Carta Wikipedia page.

Cornelia Parker examines stitching as an expression of belonging and a vehicle for change
Throughout history people have employed needle and thread to create objects that have played an important role in signalling allegiance and stimulating discussion about rights, responsibilities and freedoms. Sue Prichard, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Textiles at the Victoria & Albert Museum chairs a panel of artists, including Cornelia Parker, makers and experts to examine stitching as an expression of belonging and a vehicle for change.
