Thread Bare is an exhibition of selected works by artist Kate Kretz. Through her use of traditionally feminized mediums, such as embroidery and sewing, Kretz engages with the theme of female identity formation as both lived experience and ideological construct. Addressing the subjects of maternity and aging in particular, Thread Bare sheds light on the aspects of female experience often deemed too "messy" or "ugly" for public consumption.
