A group show by eight Japanese artists using – as the title suggests – needle and thread as their expressive medium, a medium associated with ‘handicraft’ and ‘dressmaking’, an activity that women do in the home, revisited here in the context of contemporary art. Participating artists are Akiyama Sayaka, Ito Zon, Okamura Tsunao, Kiyokawa Asami, Takemura Kei, Tezuky Aiko, nui project, and Murayama Ruriko.

Also involving thread is the year-long project Knit Café in My Room by Hirose Mitsuharu and Nishiyama Minako underway at the 21st Century Museum of Art, Kanazawa (through 22 March 2010).
