Opening Reception: Crafting Change: New Textile Work by Students, Faculty, and Alumni
September 20 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Attend an opening event for Crafting Change on Thursday, September 20, at 6 pm at Gallery FIT, The Museum at FIT.
The work of FIT students, faculty, and alumni takes center stage in the FIT exhibition Crafting Change. Organized by the Textile/Surface Design Department in conjunction with New York Textile Month, the works featured in Crafting Change use long-established techniques in a modern context to explore the shifting boundaries between art, design, and technology.
The use of handcrafting techniques combined with digital processes preserves tradition while pushing textiles into the future. Projects bridging science and textiles have the potential to revolutionize the fashion and textile industries, leading us to a more sustainable world. These works are promising examples of how FIT is successfully encouraging interdisciplinary mergers between craft, technology, and sustainability to usher textile arts into the 21st century.
The exhibition will be on view September 15–October 6, 2018.
