Collective are delighted to present a new large-scale tapestry by Christian Newby in our City Dome. This new commission responds to the building, originally built to house an astronomical telescope, with a textile architectural intervention that divides the space, made using an industrial carpet tufting gun, accompanied by a specially produced newspaper, An Illuminated Manual for Drawing with Carpet.
Christian Newby is an artist based in London. He graduated with an MFA from Glasgow School of Art (2009). Selected exhibitions include: Brick-Wall-Spider-Web-Post-It-Note, Beers London (2019), Yo Compro Calidad, Matadero, Madrid (2017); Tetracontameron Space Between, London (2016) and; Le Club des Sous l’Eau’ Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2016).
