Changing Landscapes-Contemporary Chinese Fiber Art

The American Textile History Museum
October 23, 2009 – March 14, 2010, Wednesdays – Sundays
First contemporary Chinese fiber art exhibition in the U.S. Includes tapestries and sculpture. This exhibit, co-curated by Ni Yue-Hong, a professor at the Fiber Arts Institute of Tsinghua University in Beijin and Deborah Corsini, curator of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, offers two-dimensional tapestries as well as sculptural work by emerging, mid-career, and master artists who study or teach at institutions of higher education throughout China. The exhibit is a snapshot of how three generations of artists working in fiber media are documenting, navigating, and responding to the tremendous economic, political, and social changes that have transformed the Chinese landscape over the past decade.
