3 March 2020

Supported by the Aga Khan Foundation (UK), an exhibition "Rethreading and Retracing: Textiles & Techniques" by internationally renowned textile artist Bita Ghezelayagh, ran the Aga Khan Centre Gallery in London from 27 February until 3 March. The exhibition has given a glimpse into her practice which is influenced by her Iranian cultural heritage. Bita transforms old woven textiles and eastern carpets into new pictorial objects and works of art. She uses traditional embroidery techniques along with found materials to transform disused textiles, giving them a renewed sense of life and an altogether different purpose.
