OFF GRID brings together works that push beyond the cloth grid – the warp and weft that defines the form of most textiles. OFF GRID examines the fracturing of this grid conceptually as well as challenging notions of materiality and the making process. In response to the tradition of textiles in art and craft these artists re-contextualise this grid through various multidisciplinary approaches. Some artists embrace the use of traditional and handmade techniques with alternative contemporary materials, whilst others incorporate new technologies to create immersive environments. OFF GRID traverses works that consider textiles within space, using both sculpture and performance to free the cloth grid completely from the two-dimensional. Within OFF GRID the act of making and the act of moving are both present.

A collaboration between Dell Stewart and Isobel Knowles for an exhibition opening on the 12th of August at Popcraft, 'The Hands of Mei Lanfang' invites the audience to try on the hands of Mei Lanfang by way of customised gloves. Each handmade glove is stitched into a position which holds a certain meaning in the language of the Peking opera. The opera performer, Mei Lanfang was particularly revered for his beautiful hand gestures, often playing female roles and using hand gestures to emphasise femininity.
