Yarn for Hands brings together six artists from the Latin-American diaspora as a bold response to the impact of fast fashion vs a slow-time approach to textile-making. ​​​

By reconnecting to the experiential tactility of working directly with yarn and recyclable materials, the newly commissioned artworks invite the visitor closer to the aesthetic impact, technical skills and powerful storytelling capacity of textile art.

The exhibition is curated by Yunuen Perez, featuring artists Carla Risco, Carmen Novoa, Isabel Avendano-Hazbun, Paula doPrado, Viviana Arango and Yunuen Perez.
