Craft & Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles, CA
The Textile Society of America’s (TSA) 2014 Biennial Symposium, New Directions: Examining the Past, Creating the Future, will feature the organization’s first juried exhibition of contemporary textile art. The symposium theme explores change and innovation in textiles in the past while exploring the state of the field of textiles, textile study, production and creativity; today and for the future. Following this broad theme, the exhibition—the opening will be celebrated on the final day of the conference sessions--includes the work of TSA members from around the world whose practices draw on textile materials, techniques, or knowledge, widely defined. Nineteen works from established and emerging artists were selected from more that 400 submissions from 159 artists internationally.
Participating Artists: Whitney Artell, Guillermo Bert, Caroline Charuk, Lia Cook, Henia Eizenberg, Jenne Giles, Amy Gross, Ana Lisa Headstrom, Mariko Kusumoto, June Lee, Abbie Miller, Susan Moss, Linda Ohrn-McDaniel, Peggy Osterkamp, Meghan Price, Jennifer Reifsneider, Cynthia Schira, Pauline Verbeek Cowart, Irene Walker
