Coinciding with the Linen Biennale, Lavish and Judicious explores the radical, political, social and artistic potential of production. A key reference point for this exhibition is Sion Mills, a model village in Strabane developed in the 1800s as a site of linen production and a social experiment, providing a range of facilities for the welfare of its mill workers and their families.
The exhibition, through different artistic responses, examines the possibilities and tensions that exist in productivity, and how manual labour can generate collectivity and community, imagine new futures and interactions, as well as question contemporary systems of production.
