Embedded is a contemporary quilt exhibition curated by Tania Ferrier for International Womens Day.
Seven artists have each created or appropriated a quilt showcasing personal ideas of femaleness and identity responding to the traditional or cliche ideal of women in art/craft.

"The seven artists in Embedded have created quilts for International Women’s Day, 2019.
They have embedded/inserted/placed their personal story deeply and firmly within their quilts: some whimsical, some poignant and some downright disconcerting."
- Tania Ferrier
Embedded curator and exhibiting artist Tania Ferrier will be running a CRAP CRAFT session on March 17th as part of the exhibition program. Ferrier's quilt is a reimagining of her early work Angry Underwear and a perfect IWD activity for participants wanting to take control of their bodies and feminine (or not so feminine) identities.
Initially designed for the strippers to wear on stage, Angry Underwear went from club land to become an international media sensation. Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Lauren Hutton, Reno and Odetta are amongst the celebrities who own Ferrier's bras.
Tania exhibited an Angry Underwear collection at NOIR Darkroom in early 2018, click here for more information.
