About the Event

Magdalena Abakanowicz, Feliciano Centurión, El Anatsui, Sheila Hicks, Chiharu Shiota, and the women of Gee Bend redefined the boundaries of the sculptural medium by using ropes, wires, and threads.

Addressing issues of gender, sexuality, colonialism, migration, and the transmission of traditional knowledge, fibre artists have embraced the plasticity and transformative potential of textiles as forces of resistance and healing to narrate their personal history and reimagining the world.
