Since this time she has both lectured and created exhibition projects with a focus on fabric, gender and politics. Recent projects include Forbidden Symmetries(European Kunsthalle, Semperdepot, Vienna, 2015) which combined ideas about lace-making as decoration built through geometric calculation and other types of structural rules including quasicrystalline patterns;Screens (part of Projekt 25/25/25 for Kunsthalle Bielefeld, 2014) which was an installation of linen wall-hangings and a printed text work ; and Rose Fortune, (Ludlow38, MINI / Goethe-Institut, New York, 2014) which was inspired by the Lower East Side’s Garment District’s history of workers’ rights and the democratisation of women’s clothing.
