Indigenous artists have long used beadwork to tell stories, honour loved ones and celebrate beauty. Using techniques and knowledge passed from previous generations, today’s Indigenous artists are using beading to address concerns related to history, decolonization and resistance. Radical Stitch – the largest contemporary beadwork exhibition to date – presents a wealth of works ranging from wearable art and portraiture to installation and video that connect past and present as they imagine new worlds.

The accompanying catalogue celebrates the innovative art of 56 artists from across Turtle Island who have exhibited at most or all of the venues for this touring exhibition. In full, vivid colour, this publication presents 30 figures and 82 plates of their selected artworks, which reflect a range of humour, poignant testimony, and political and social commentary.
