Emma Neuberg’s Billboard Skirts were originally commissioned by the Textiles Environment Design department at University of the Arts London for exhibition in Ever & Again at the Triangle Gallery, Chelsea College of Art & Design, London. The works were then selected by Textile Forum Southwest to be toured nationally as part of a new show called Material Actions.
Emma’s Billboard Skirts were a series of six skirt-shaped pieces addressing myth, monoculture, feminism and consumerism. Pictured here is Barbie Goes Shopping, polythene and cotton, 110cm x 70cm, 2007.
