From a lineage of Indian weavers steeped in textile traditions, Hammad Abid's MFA TX 21 material investigations situate concepts of place, displacement, and memory into the experimental weavings and jacquard. This series highlights the intersections of art, design, theory, social justice and research in interviewed conversations within the RISD community, its faculty and students.
