Hauser and Wirth Somerset: ‘The New Bend’. Artist and writer Ferren Gipson in conversation with Abigail Booth.

March 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Come along and hear the artist and writer Ferren Gipson in conversation with Somerset artist-maker Abigail Booth.

‘The New Bend’ exhibition brings together 12 contemporary artists working in the raced, classed and gendered traditions of quilting and textile practice. The works are in dialogue with, and in homage to, the contributions of the Gee’s Bend Alabama quilters—Black American women in collective cooperation and creative economic production—and their enduring legacy.’

‘Ferren Gipson (b.1986 Jacksonville, AR; lives and works in London, UK) is a British-American art historian, writer and textile artist. Her words can be found across mediums, including her books, ‘The Ultimate Art Museum’ (2021) and ‘Women’s Work’ (2022); articles in the ‘Financial Times’ and WeTransfer’s online magazine ‘WePresent’; and the popular visual arts podcast ‘Art Matters.’

‘The New Bend’ is on view at Hauser & Wirth Somerset from Saturday 28 January until Monday 8 May 2023.
