Unsolicited Advice | Laura Marsh
April 2023 – July 2023 | HUB Gallery
Is it safe to say at one point in your life that you have both given and received unsolicited advice? How did that make you feel? These are the questions; Laura Marsh asks as a textile artist of humanitarian messages and social practice. The solo exhibition, Unsolicited Advice, is a phrase taken from a small banner included in the exhibition. Through textile paintings, banners, spheres, and installations, Marsh discusses larger societal issues through the use of fabric. She invites participants to sit on the spheres and provides spaces to contemplate larger text statements and interact with textiles.
