Radical lace & subversive knitting by David Revere McFadden

Posted on Mon, January 1st, in Exhibition Reviews. In place of the usual stereotypes the plague knitting and lace making, Chief Curator of the Museum of Arts and Design, David Revere McFadden has assembled an exhibition defined by large-scale work and alternative materials. More often than not the materials here are other than textile: chocolate, metal, glass, shredded money and video all make an appearance. Strangely, there are few examples of work that interrogates the structure of knitting or lace. This poetic licence permits a vast range of work to be included, but dilutes exploration of the currency knitting in particular is currently enjoying. Rather than be pedantic about definitions of lace and knitting, McFadden has selected, along with work that is knitted or made of lace, work that is inspired by knit or lace patterns. Herzog traces portions of this original pattern with the introduction of a distinctly industrial, aggressive material: industrial staples that hold in place the fragmented remains of the textile.

  3. February 16, Who knew that knitting could rate right up there with painting and sculpture? In the hands of contemporary artists, the humble craft has moved from state fair competitions and baby blankets to cutting-edge status. As young artists freely adapt the techniques of knitting and weaving into their work, a shift is occurring in what people consider fine art. Crafts have long played second fiddle to painting and sculpture, at least as far as museums were concerned. 👩‍🏫
