    schema:description "Fiber: Sculpture 1960-present is the first exhibition in over forty years to examine the development of abstraction and dimensionality in fiber art from the mid-twentieth traditional materials, artists working in fiber manipulate gravity, light, color, mass, and transparency to demonstrate the infinite transformations of the material. Early pioneers such as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Sheila Hicks, and Lenore Tawney spearheaded a revolutionary redefinition of fiber in the 1960s and '70s, showcasing radical, nonrepresentational forms. Fiber: Sculture 1960-present features artworks that range from small-scale weavings to immersive environments. This book includes a range of texts on weavings associated with craft to off-loom sculptures aligned with mainstream art movements; a provocative investigation into the notion of softness in art; an examination of fiber art and its historical predecessor, tapestry, in relation to site-specificity; an account of the exhibitions and, finally, a section of concise essays that survey the distinctive contributions of individual practitioners. -- from dust jacket."@en ;
