Sutapa Biswas adding the final touches to 'Stitch by Stitch' before the #LUMEN exhibition opened at Kettle's Yard last weekend. 'Stitch by Stitch' was made in Japan during Biswas's time in Oita, where she researched histories of kimono, and the traditional Japanese rite of passage of 'first kimono', through conversations with an older generation of Japanese women. 'Stitch by Stitch' is a play on the Japanese tradition of un-weaving fabric thread by thread, during times of economic hardship in order to create a new 'first kimono'. See this work in the exhibition Tuesday - Sunday, 11am - 5pm. Pre-book your free visit by clicking the link in our bio. ✨ #kettlesyard #sutapabiswas #cambridge #visitcambridge #contemporaryart

This summer, Kettle’s Yard worked with a year 9 class from @northcambridgeacademy to explore the exhibition 'Untitled: Art on the conditions of our time' and produce a short film in response. The students selected a filmmaker through an open call, worked with artists from the exhibition and reflected on their experiences and ideas in sketchbooks, enabling each of them to achieve a Bronze Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification 👏 To find out more, read our latest blog post, written by Learning and Volunteers Coordinator, Imogen.
