From Phil @ MAKE:
MAKE checked out the open of the Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting at the Museum of Arts & Design in NYC… Here’s a bit about the exhibition and our photos.
“A provocative and timely exhibition of work by international artists using fiber in unexpected and unorthodox ways, Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting illuminates a field of creative practice that is fresh, surprising, and engaging. Featuring 27 artists from seven countries, this exhibition will exhibit work that ranges from Althea Merback’s microknit garments (1:144 scale) to large-scale, site-specific installations. Artists employ a variety of media, from traditional yarns and laces, to found objects and video, and explore contemporary currents in art practice of socially engaged, participatory work.” – Link.
The exhibition runs from January 25 to June 17, 2007.
