London-based artist Goshka Macuga (born 1967) embraces diverse mediums – including sculpture, installation, architecture and design – to investigate how art has been used to rouse public debate and inspire social change. Macuga's 2016 exhibition at the New Museum, Goshka Macuga: Time as Fabric, brings together a theatrical environment and a selection of tapestries, which draw on the rich historical tradition of textiles and are often vast in scale. Drawn to textiles for their rich historical tradition, Macuga exploits the representative functions of the medium, which can be used to embody political messages while also maintaining tapestry's tactility and portability. This fully illustrated catalogue features an interview with the artist by Margot Norton and new reflections on Macuga's work by artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov and curator Grant Watson.
