Craft and Folk Art Museum says…

The Craft and Folk Art Museum presents Social Fabric, an exhibition of seven contemporary artists who confront the problems of mass production and consumption through fiber-based art incorporating social engagement and public interaction. The exhibition will be on view from January 27 through May 5, 2013 and has been curated by Anuradha Vikram, Curator of Worth Ryder Art Gallery at the University of California, Berkeley, Department of Art Practice. Fabric is a rich material for contemporary American artists who are engaged with social critique and public interaction. Textiles communicate a range of ideas that reflect personal tastes and cultural identifications; yet, they also carry implications about larger concerns related to labor, global commerce, and sustainability. The emerging and mid-career American artists represented in Social Fabric use fabric in their art as a conduit to question global economic and labor systems.
