Building the Essentials: Ferne Jacobs Exhibition Catalog
The Craft in America Center presented the first ever retrospective of Los Angeles artist Ferne Jacobs. Since the 1960s, Ferne Jacobs has been at the forefront of the revolution in fiber art. She has pioneered ways to create a new category of sculpture. Transforming materials and pushing boundaries, she builds solid structures with coiled, twined, and knotted thread. This exhibition is the first to survey more than fifty years of Jacobs’ pivotal and timeless work through the present. Jacobs’ intimate drawings and collage diaries, which have never been publicly displayed before now, provide an additional lens into her vision, inspiration, and philosophical perspective.
Printed copies of this catalog are available on Blurb for $24.
