FRAY ↬ 22-26 September 2016
The Textile Arts Center × The Vanderbilt Republic are pleased to present FRAY,
the final exhibition of the 7th cycle of Artists in Residence,
on view from September 22nd to the 26th at Gowanus Loft in Brooklyn.
Fray is the unravelling edge of a textile, exposing the structure of the material, through time. The exhibition FRAY presents the work developed by the eight Artists in Residence at the Textile Arts Center. Over a period of nine months, from October 2015 to June 2016, the artists of FRAY delved into concepts of landscape, time, form and storytelling, individually and as a group. The work showcased in the exhibition represents each artist’s process of exploration of these topics and features techniques ranging from weaving to inflatables, marbling and bobbin lace, proposing new visions for textiles in contemporary art.
