The Embedded Message: Quilting in Contemporary Art

  • Visual Arts Center of Richmond 1812 West Main Street Richmond, VA (map)

This exhibition explores how a current generation of contemporary artists are employing quilt traditions and techniques to make social, political and personal commentary. These textile-based sculptures presented on the wall and floor exemplify the ways in which thirteen selected American artists mine the historic meaning, techniques and processes of traditional quilt making.
