History and subversion at an exhibition of quilts
At the End of the Day by Natasha Kerr
Quilting is traditionally regarded as an innocuous feminine pastime, but as a new exhibition, Quilts 1700-2010, at London’s V&A shows, it is rich in subversion, allusion and social commentary. Historic quilts mix with edgy contemporary works, as an age-old craft skill discovers new followers. Shown here is At the End of the Day, stitched by textile artist Natasha Kerr.
Where: V&A, London, UK
When: Until 4 July
