Color Improvisations 2 🌐

Du 30 mai au 23 Septembre 2018

Textile Museum of Canada
55 Centre Avenue
M5G 2H5

Exposition de quilts contemporains organisée par Nancy Crow, une des plus célèbres artistes nord américaines dans cette technique. Vingt cinq artistes, du Canada, d’Allemagne, d’Ecosse, de Suisse et de France, ainsi que Nancy Crow, montrent leurs pièces.

This project grew out of Crow’s interest in celebrating the ‘majesty, strength and energy of large textile works, specifically large quilts.’ While the exhibitors’ collective use of rich, solid colours, improvisational piecing and intricate machine quilting are all at the service of pure abstract design, each artist maintains a strong individual identity in this new show.

Color Improvisations 2 premiered at the Museum Tuch und Technik in Germany in 2016, and has subsequently been shown in Spain, Switzerland and France. A select number of works will also be presented at the Susquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, but for now, this is the exhibition’s first North American, and only Canadian venue.
