Pio Abad Interview: Pacita Abad, Life in the Margins exhibition at Spike Island

'Life in the Margins' at Spike Island is the first exhibition in the UK by Filipino American artist Pacita Abad (1946–2004). Co-curator Pio Abad talks about the exhibition which includes twenty large-scale ‘trapunto’ paintings and works on fabric made between 1983 and 2002. Focusing on her depictions of the experiences of immigrants and her engagement with diverse cultural traditions, the exhibition at Spike Island offers an idiosyncratic perspective on transnational art and culture.

The exhibition continues at Spike Island until 5 April 2020
