About This Exhibition:
Every day, people engage with textiles in the woven materials of clothing, the pieced fabric of quilts and the hand stitching of embroidery. Seeing Textiles in Painting, Printing, and Papermaking, 1960-Today explores how modern and contemporary artists take inspiration from textiles.
Drawing primarily from the University's collections of African American and Native American art, the exhibition shows how artists experiment with form, color and texture across media. Whether they are quilting virtuosos or have never touched a knitting needle before, viewers are invited to think about how art can be part of everyday experience.
