A Complex Weave reveals the richness and complexity of contemporary Feminist art, through its focus on issues of identity in all its many facets. This exhibition examines how sixteen contemporary women artists with varying backgrounds in terms of age, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation and other aspects of individuality have woven threads of their own sense of self into their work, revealing surprising commonalities across apparent differences.

A Complex Weave spans the media of drawing, painting, sculpture, fibers, video, installation and photography and can be understood as a multi-dimensional exploration of the concept  of identity, that is not only central to individuals, but also plays a critical role in today's world.
