Glucksman Gallery

The Knitting Map: Art, Community and Controversy 2005-2015

The Knitting Map was one of the flagship projects of Cork’s year as European Capital of Culture in 2005, and became the subject of local and national controversy.

Artists: Jools Gilson and Richard Povall in association with the School of English, University College Cork.

The Knitting Map was one of the flagship projects of Cork’s year as European Capital of Culture in 2005, and became the subject of local and national controversy in that year, as well as during the intervening decade. The Knitting Map was a durational, textile installation, which combined hand-knitting with motion-sensing technologies, and involved more than two thousand people, many of whom were working class women from Cork.

The Glucksman Gallery will present both the original work of art that emerged from this ambitious collaboration, as well as photography, documents and media reports that contextualise the project and enable audiences to revisit and explore this key moment in Cork's cultural history.
