About this Event

Initially considered ‘decorative’ and mostly a woman’s domain during the Bauhaus years, the medium of fabric art has earned a very strong standing in today's contemporary art world. But who were the early pioneer artists who made people take this art form more seriously, and what makes fabric such an interesting material to work with? It's time to uncover the history of fabric art and the innovative ways artists have manipulated this wonderful material throughout the past century.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore modern art works made from threads or fabric, and fabric art's development from once being considered strictly decorative to an expressive contemporary art medium.

Led by Sylvia Laudien-Meo — art historian, museum educator, and NYC tour guide — this virtual journey through fabric art will include:

  • The beginnings of modern interest in fabric art during the Arts & Crafts movement
  • The leading artists of the Bauhaus School weaving workshop and how they created innovative textile with new materials and functions
  • ‘Nomadic murals’ made by leading early modernist artists like Le Corbusier for International Style architecture
  • The major modern artists who worked with fabric, including Picasso, Miro, and Leger
  • Pioneer contemporary fabric artists like Lenore Tawney, Magdalena Abrakanovicz, Senga Nengudi, Mrinalini Mukherjee, and many others
  • Interior designers focusing on fabric as their material

Afterward, we'll have a Q&A with Sylvia — any and all questions about fabric art are welcomed and encouraged!
