Fuller Craft Museum: Gender Bend: Women in Wood, Men at the Loom is a multi-media exhibition featuring male weavers alongside female wood turners – two populations that have been traditionally underrepresented in their fields. This project will introduce the public to remarkable artists who challenge our long-held perceptions about their chosen fields, while encouraging new practitioners to consider mediums rich in possibility. The visually resplendent exhibition offers wide appeal across all audiences, providing multiple programming opportunities geared to engage our patrons during the exhibition’s run and beyond. Jon Eric Riis and Tib Shaw are co-curators.
“Gender Bend: Women in Wood, Men at the Cloth is a rich, lush exhibition that features the superb work of female woodworkers and male tapestry weavers. By shining a light on two populations that have been underrepresented in their fields, we challenge the longstanding presuppositions about art, craft, utility, and the role of certain individuals for certain tasks. At the same time, the works clearly brim with mastery and creativity, showing the heights that are possible in the actions of the loom and the lathe.” ~Beth Mclaughlin, Curator, Fuller Craft Museum
