This exhibition illustrates a forthcoming series of publications authored by Ritu Kumar on her travels through South Asia and Europe. These journeys have involved deep research and reflection on the textile arts of the regions and their unique histories. They come alive through archival textiles, vintage photographs, collages and paintings. Forming both professional memoirs and artistic musings, this is a personal perspective on dynamic handcrafted traditions at the crossroads of change.
