KANEKO | 1111 Jones St
FIBER will be on view at KANEKO from Feb. 6–April 25, 2015.
As a collective exhibition, FIBER provides a diverse and engaging sampling of the ways in which textiles and fiber art serve as a canvas for various expressions of culture and the creative process.
Throughout human history, whether as intimate artifacts of interpersonal relationships or monumental works of art, fiber art and design has been imbued with social importance. Fiber arts can communicate and construct status, ethnicity, gender, taste and wealth, and have functioned at the nexus of artistic, economic and political achievement in human culture. Divined by both hand and heart, fiber art and design has been instrumental in generating, supporting and challenging mankind’s wardrobe of social power.
