Curated by Helena Frei & Chris Mitchell, Hard Twist 10 Memory winds its way through textiles, a constant thread that runs through the earliest archaeological fragments, the latest experimental synthetics and everything in between.

Opening reception on September 10th 7-10pm on the 3rd and 4th floors galleries. On view August 27, 2015 to December 27, 2015 on the 3rd and 4th floors of the hotel.
