Graffiti and textile work are both rooted in society and both have had to fight hard for a place in the art world. These two very different art forms have in common that they often express political views, sometimes straightforward, sometimes associative and intuitive. Both art forms will get a well-deserved stage in Centraal Museum this summer.

Come and see how textile work from all over the world expresses itself in all its vulnerability and how graffiti art since the 1970s has been celebrating the language and diversity of the street. Experience and participate in interventions by Crafting Resistance and Creative Lab Utrecht and you can be sure that you won't ever look at graffiti and textile art the same way again.

In the exhibition, you will see work by:
