Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Synopsis

"Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting" presents an array of works that reflect the energy, vitality and innovation demonstrated by a diverse group of contemporary artists who apply traditional knitting and lacemaking techniques to unusual materials, or new techniques and technologies to traditional materials. The works brought together here are by artists from many different countries. Individually these works peak to the pervasive and persuasive cultural, social, and political issues with which art intersects today. The role of hand work as a symbol of community and communication is highlighted in many of these pieces, and the artist's personal commitment to collaborative experiments is the focus of others. The works are also barometers of change in the visual arts of our time, signaling the dissolving of the categories of art, craft and design that have fragmented the world of aesthetic and functional objects for more than a century.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Overdone Exhibition Catalog for Textile Art Enthusiasts 8. April 2011
Von 🌺 Lynne E. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a museum exhibition catalog--an overblown, overdone one--that was first published in conjunction with a 2007 exhibition, RADICAL LACE & SUBVERSIVE KNITTING, that was organized by the Museum of Arts & Design (New York City). The first 142 pages (1-2, 3-4, etc.) are printed on uncut, doubled pages (with blank inside pages) that make the catalog book twice as thick and heavy as it ought to be!

There isn't much lace, unless you count the lacey-look items like the laser-cut metal shovels, flamework glass sculpture, cut-out steel wall decorations, and paper-doily constructions. Quite a few items have some knitted or crocheted elements, but they don't strike me as particularly "subversive"--they're just nice textile art. Things that I particularly liked were the enlarged photos of Althea Merback [Crome]'s tiny sweaters, and Janet Echelman's giant fiber and steel bowl that calls to mind a particularly beautiful radio telescope.

The short discussions of the included textile artists and their current aesthetics do add considerable value to this catalog. Included artists are Liz Collins, Freddie Robins, Erna van Sambeek, Yoshiki Hishinima, Barbara Zucker, Ruth Marshall, Annet Couwenberg, Janet Echelman, Dave Cole, Althea Merback [Crome], Hank Wolvers, Niels van Eijk, Bennett Battaile, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Cat Mazza, Francoise Dupre, Shane Waltener, Cal Lane, Piper Shepard, Elana Herzog, Eugene van Veldhoven, Hildur Bjarnadottir,, Carson Fox, Hilal Sami Hilal, Edward Mayer, Sheila Pepe, and Anne Wilson.

This is a book for textile artists and art historians. A better choice for a crafter who is intrigued by unusual knitted or crocheted art projects would be Astounding Knits!: 101 Spectacular Knitted Creations and Daring Feats, or Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I wish I had had the funds to see this wonderful exhibition! 17. Mai 2012
Von tracy parker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I really loved this book. It is a tremendous inspiration for the modern textile artisan. This book is not a project guide or even a how to book, this book is a work of art. I in particular loved page 59 "The knitting machine 2005" 2 john deere excavators knitting! My next favorite is page 60 "ancient greek gloves" the smallest pair of mittens I have ever seen! I also appreciate the biographical info on each artist.
