F_detail2_2

A new exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum highlights the work of three contemporary artists working with the concept of the quilt in new ways. Sabrina Gschwandtner stitches together strips of 16mm film with polyamide to construct her quilts (detail shown above). Stephen Sollins re-constructs antique quilts from non-traditional materials like tyvek and paper envelopes, while Luke Hynes creates quilts of pop culture iconography. All address the traditional form in new, enlightening ways. On view through January 5.
