The first rotation in this gallery features the work of early pioneers of fiber art—Lenore Tawney, Sheila Hicks, and Olga de Amaral—who radically redefined textiles in the 1960s and ’70s with monumental sculptures that engaged with contemporary art movements such as Minimalism. The second rotation, opening in spring 2020, focuses on contemporary artists using the medium of textiles (embroidery, weaving, printed fabric, and quilts) to challenge notions of identity, gender, and politics.
