"Right wrong side, woven threads among art, design and mass creativity"--Back cover.
Dritto Rovescio, threads that weave art, design and mass creativity, is an exhibition on the use of knitting and embroidery by contemporary artists. The show stems from a two year project developed by the group Do-Knit-yourself and Naba together with the Triennale Design Museum.
"Diritto Rovescio features a bit of everything: the darlings of the blogosphere (Patricia Waller and her circus of ever-suffering animals), the brainy (Daina Taimina's crocheted models of hyperbolic space), the activists (Cat Mazza (microRevolt)), the designers (the Campana brothers, Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders, Tokujin and Patricia Urquiola), and many more. Freddie Robins created a man-size pink overall that fits the human body as if it represented an alternative to and a second skin, a video documented Harush Shlomo's woven catamaran at the Venice lagoon, Claudia Los showed a collective embroidering event, Aldo Lanzini did photo portraits of masks inspired by crocheted 'revolutionary' baklavas, Anila Rubiku exhibited textile boxes, Stephanie Syjuco's created counterfeit crocheted handbags, etc."--Http://www.we-make-money-not-art.com/archives/2009/03/diritto-rovescio.php.
