Fiber Futures: Japan’s Textile Pioneers  (July 20- December 1, 2012)
This exhibition explores a new art that is emerging from a remarkable fusion of Japanese artisanal and industrial textile making. Coaxed from materials as age-old as hemp and newly developed as microfilaments, a varied array of works by thirty contemporary Japanese artists, from multiple generations, are on view in this important two-part exhibition.
