DETAILS OF US EXHIBITION: Whipstitch: The State of Contemporary Textiles at the Ann Arbor Art Center in Ann Arbor, MI from March 31-April 29, 2017.
Whipstitch: The State of Contemporary Textiles –
This show explores contemporary approaches to making and using textiles, where centuries-old traditions serve as the foundation and concept behind quilting, sculpture, assemblage and design. The methods of making are expanded upon with the assistance of digital language, tools and machines. These artists are pushing the boundaries by commenting on the process of making and redefining the purpose of textiles, while also paying homage to its rich and varied traditions. This show does not aim to dive too deeply into any one technique or application, but to offer the viewer a glimpse into the depth, nuance and voice that artists are giving textiles today.
