The status of textiles as an art medium is highly ambivalent. Traditionally, they have been situated on the margins, in a borderland between art and craft. Since the 1960s, a growing body of contemporary art demonstrates a new engagement with the materials and techniques of crafts, particularly textiles, raising questions about the value of the handmade in the digital age. This show will include artists such as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Ghada Amer and Kimsooja who use textiles as a powerful tool for epressing ideas about the social, political and artistic

La exposición explora las múltiples facetas del diseñador, artesano, empresario, poeta, ensayista y agitador social William Morris (1834-1896), así como de las principales figuras del movimiento Arts and Crafts. Esta nueva generación de arquitectos, diseñadores, artistas y artesanos compartían la preocupación por los dañinos efectos de la industrialización, tanto en las condiciones sociales y laborales como en en la artesanía tradicional británica. El movimiento impulsó un amplio resurgir de las artes y los oficios, en el ámbito profesional y en el doméstico, defendiendo un estilo de vida sencillo y cercano a la Naturaleza. Las cuestiones que planteó acerca de la sostenibilidad de la producción industrial, la relación entre el trabajo y la vida, la honestidad de los materiales, la belleza de los objetos cotidianos y la protección los edificios antiguos y del medio ambiente siguen plenamente vigentes en la actualidad. La muestra está organizada en cuatro secciones cronológicas y temáticas, con 300 piezas de mobiliario, textiles, papeles pintados, joyas, vidrio, cerámica, metalistería, encuadernaciones, pintura, dibujo, grabado y fotografía: De los orígenes a la Red House, 1834-1860 incluye obras de A.W.N. Pugin, John Ruskin y otras figuras asociadas al resurgimiento del Gótico, así como de los miembros de la hermandad prerrafaelita D.G. Rossetti y E. Burne-Jones.William. Morris y compañía, 1861-1896 se centra en los objetos que la empresa de Morris producía y vendía, dedicando especial atención al proceso artesanal de su fabricación, y se fija en la faceta conservacionista y política de Morris y en la labor de su editorial Kelmscott Press. El movimiento Arts & Crafts en Gran Bretaña, 1887-1914 revisa la expansión del movimiento a través de obras de C.R. Ashbee, M.H. Baillie Scott, Sidney Barnsley, W. Crane, E. Gimson, W.R. Lethaby, C.R. y M.M. Mackintosh, C.F.A. Voysey y P. Webb, así como de los establecimientos Liberty y Heal's. Por último, La difusión del movimiento Arts & Crafts, 1890-1914 ilustra las distintas conexiones entre el movimiento británico y su desarrollo en países de Europa y Estados Unidos, con piezas de Hendrik Petrus Berlage, Josef Franz Maria Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, Lars Kinsarvik, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Joan Busquets o Frank Lloyd Wright, entre otros
