Fiber is the material of revolution. Think of Betsy Ross stitching an early version of the American flag or Eugène Delacroix’s Liberty holding colors aloft to usher in the French Revolution. In recent decades, boundary-shattering artists from Judy Chicago to Faith Ringgold have provided potent kindling for social and political movements by utilizing or referencing fiber. Live Wire explores fiber’s remarkable ability to conduct world-changing ideological currents. This national group show of contemporary fiber artists is presented in collaboration with the Española Valley Fiber Arts CenterTrace the conceptual threads of Live Wire below, and click individual artworks for statements from the artists.
