Lost Threads
January 19 – April 21, 2024
The Holburne Museum, Bath, UK

Weaving and flowing across the front façade and around the permanent collections, LUBAINA HIMID’s Lost Threads will see 400 metres of vibrant Dutch wax fabric transform the spaces of the Holburne Museum.

Reflecting the movement of the oceans and rivers that have been used to transport cotton, yarn and enslaved people throughout history, Lost Threads traces the paradoxes of textile production and circulation by engaging with its material implications.

As part of this presentation, LUBAINA HIMID will give an artist talk on Thursday, March 14, from 7-8:30pm. Details available here.
