Lost in Lace

Date: 29 October 2011 – 19 February 2012
Venue: Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

Lost in Lace will see 20 leading international artists take over the Gas Hall at BMAG this winter, exploring the relationship between textiles – specifically lace – and space through a series of dramatic and ambitious new site-sensitive installations.

Japanese artists represented in this exhibition will include Ai Matsumoto, who will install a series of panels of silicone within which is trapped the imprint of a hand-embroidered handkerchief. Another Japanese artist showcased at Lost in Lace will be Naomi Kobayashi, who will be showing 12 floor-to-ceiling columns made by constructing and stitching together Japanese washi. Suzumi Noda, Chiharu Shiota and Reiko Sudo are also exhibiting. This is a rare opportunity to see the work of not only well-established Japanese artists but also that of exciting new talent.
