The American tradition of quilts has always had a unique tension between form and function, with the design often acting as a secret language that gave quilts a double function. This show introduces three contemporary artists who use unique materials, such as Tyvek envelopes and 16mm film strips, and techniques to make the art form their own. Works from the museum’s collection provide a counterpoint to their quilts, letting museumgoers discover how the artists’ creations resemble but are different from those of their predecessors.
