The Fabric Workshop and Museum is pleased to announce the opening of Process and Practice: 40 Years of Experimentation, an exhibition celebrating four decades of innovation.
Curated by Executive Director Susan Lubowsky Talbott, Process and Practice reveals a rarely-seen side of the Museum’s Artist-in-Residence Program through the unpacking of its unique collection of Artists’ Boxes. Displayed will be notes, sketches, tests, and models from over one hundred boxes, including those of such celebrated artists as Laurie Anderson, Chris Burden, Cai Guo-Qiang, and Kara Walker.
Paired with completed works from the permanent collection, the boxes reveal the private thoughts and creative leaps of artists exploring unfamiliar materials, testing ideas and ultimately producing new works.
The exhibition serves as a tribute to the enduring vision of FWM’s late founder, Marion Boulton “Kippy” Stroud and marks the conclusion of The Fabric Workshop and Museum’s 40th anniversary year.
Process and Practice: 40 Years of Experimentation continues at The Fabric Workshop and Museum (1214 Arch St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) through March 25, 2018.
