Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting

Date posted: 2007-01-25 15:51:00

A provocative and timely exhibition of work by international artists (including Cat Mazza, MFA Rensselaer 2005) 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.
