Rug and textile exhibitions that promote the importance and relevance of the field also come under the spotlight, with reviews of Lila Valdan’s ‘Night Time in a Palace’, the ‘Weaving Poems’ display by Turquoise Mountain in Doha, Outi Pieski at Tate St Ives, and ‘Unravel. The Power and Politics of Textiles in Art’ at London’s Barbican.
