TLmag 32 Extended: Contemporary Applied

This extended edition of TLmag’s 32nd printed edition highlights the energy and daring of the designers who throw themselves body and soul into the challenge of hand and material.

Multi-disciplinary artist Igshaan Adams unpacks his identity through ritualistic performances and his use of handicrafts such as embroidery and beading. Delving into personal topics that look toward the environment in which he was raised, he resolves conflicting identities in a quest for spiritual enlightenment.

Glenn Adamson

By focusing on craft and materiality as a common fabric, curator and writer Glenn Adamson’s practice hopes to cross cultural and language barriers alike. TLmag spoke to Glenn to learn more about his extensive research on material culture, his thoughts on distributed authorship and the need for designers and artists to create curiosity in fraught political times.
