• Ruby Joy Eade

An exhibition reimagining the afterlife of fashion garments. Drawing on the long history of quilting in which offcuts are reconstructed as artisan objects and treasured family heirlooms, artist Ruby Joy Eade dives into Caughley's archive stock to create contemporary bespoke quilts. Eade's iconic checkerboard cushions will also be available to view and purchase.

Ruby Joy Eade is an artist and maker based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington. Her practice encompasses a range of mediums including print, installation, ceramic and quilts. Eade’s work explores the relationship between text and textile, alongside fine art and domestic objects.

This exhibition is presented in conjunction with Threads: Textiles Festival. With more than 15 free exhibitions and a roster of workshops, talks and tours at venues spanning Lower Hutt, Petone, Thorndon and the central city, Threads sheds new night on contemporary textile practices in Aotearoa and beyond. The festival will take place across Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington from 16-20 March 2022, read more here.
