July 13 – September 21, 2019
Material Meaning will feature work by ten contemporary American artists and designers working with textiles who are strongly influenced by Anni Albers – paired with their statements that make that influence explicit, personal and varied. This exhibit includes a selection of artworks, woven prototypes/experiments, and functional woven textiles – a mix that mirrors Albers’ varied design practice. Given the broad and deep nature of Albers’ legacy, this exhibit is not meant to be definitive. It is intended as an exploration of her ongoing influence, as interpreted by a group of current practitioners in the fields of art, handweaving, and textile design – many of whom are also educators.
