The Threads We Carry, Across Borders by Par Nair

April 27 - June 16, 2024
Craft Ontario Gallery, 1106 Queen Street West, Toronto

‘the threads we carry, across borders’ is a solo exhibition of hand-embroidered textiles by Indian-born, Toronto-based artist Par Nair that examines the lived experiences of diaspora and complexities of intergenerational knowledge. Through these works, Par addresses traditional knowledge, cultural histories and family archives, while shedding light on stories and voices of people historically silenced in colonized spaces.
