Beads, They're Sewn So Tight is the exhibition catalogue published by the Textile Museum of Canada for the art show that opened in October 2018 and runs until May 2019. This show was curated by Lisa Myers and features the outstanding beaded works by Bev Koski, Katie Longboat, Jean Marshall, and Olivia Whetung, many of which were displayed for the first time. From weaving to loom–work and embroidery, their artwork threads together formal aspects of artmaking such as colour and composition with critical issues such as language retention, stereotypes, and social and environmental injustices for Indigenous people. The 72-page catalogue listed more than 40 individual pieces by the beadwork and quillwork artists. The works range from traditional Cree florals, Iroquois raised beading and contemporary jewellery making techniques. This catalogue celebrates the artistic perspectives of four First Nations women whose chosen media is beading, embroidery and quillwork. Highly recommended.
