Soft Pictures is a group exhibition that explores the use of textile in contemporary art. The show addresses the multiplicity of meanings that the adoption of this medium entails in artistic practice.
Historically, the use of textile as a material to create art images can be placed halfway between the liberal and applied arts, and its position is still considered a contested issue. Today, artists are going back to textile and its multiple historical, political, social and symbolic meanings—a rich semantic texture, which unfolds through the exhibition.
