2012 Exhibitions » Common Thread

Woollen blankets have been a part of our history since their early arrival in the 1800’s, to the production in mills around the country during the industrialisation of New Zealand. Woollen blankets are common place objects that were and still are a part of every home. This exhibition looks at the original context of the blanket and then turns the focus to the expansion of its use as a material used in contemporary art practice.
