Write The First Customer Review

Despite the ubiquity of textile and their prominence in contemporary art, there has been to date relatively little theoretical writing addressing textiles as a unique medium, technology and cultural practice. "Material Matters" offers an eminently useful collection of essays on important aspects of textile practice. Its contents outline broad theoretical matrices and identify historical and cultural contexts particular to textiles, as well as presenting works by notable textile artists.
