Iniva presents Social Fabric, an exhibition that uses textiles to explore colonial history, international trade, labour and militant politics. In the 19th Century Karl Marx gave an account of the cotton trade tracking fifty years of boom and bust and the effects this had on workers in Britain and the colonies. This exhibition cross references different accounts of textile history, focusing on works by two contemporary artists Sudhir Patwardhan and Alice Creischer, presented alongside an extensive range of recent and historical archival material.
