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.
