The International Quilt Museum presents “Abstract Design in American Quilts at 50: New York Nexus” with Dr. Sandra Sider for Textile Talk on April 28 at 2 p.m. Eastern via Zoom.

This exhibit examines the importance of New York’s museums and galleries in promoting the acceptance of textile and fiber art in the fine art world. A number of groundbreaking exhibitions in the 1960s and ‘70s, including the Whitney Museum of American Art’s “Abstract Design in American Quilts”, promoted the idea that textiles could be displayed alongside paintings, prints, and sculpture.

Many of the early leaders of what would become the studio art quilt movement saw these seminal exhibitions and were encouraged to pursue quiltmaking as their primary artistic medium.
