WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to announce that new works by Athi-Patra Ruga are to be included in a group exhibition ‘Ravelling Threads‘ which opens on Thursday, 21st of June at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York. The exhibition will open from 6-8 pm at 475 Tenth Avenue.
Sean Kelly is delighted to present Ravelled Threads, a thematic exhibition of recent work by ten artists from Africa who utilize fabric to create textiles, weavings, embroidery, performances and installations. These disparate artists are united in their backgrounds, both living and working throughout Africa. Each artist is distinguished by the diverse and complex relationships that run through their varied geographical, political, and gendered narratives. Ravelled Threads is organized in collaboration with Mariane Ibrahim.
