“The Box Project: Uncommon Threads” at the Racine Art Museum

May 23, 2017

The Box Project: Uncommon Threads is open now through August 28, 2017 at the Racine Art Museum.

Uncommon Threads at RAM

Organized by the Cotsen Foundation for Academic Research (CFAR) with RAM, this traveling exhibition presents works commissioned by Lloyd Cotsen between 2004 and 2013 together with 22 large-scale fiber art pieces on loan.

Combining the box project commissions—all works that fit within a 14 x 14 or 14 x 23 inch box—and large-scale works with interviews, material samples, maquettes, correspondence, and concept sketches, the exhibition offers insight about the artists and their processes. It showcases their exploration of material and concept, their willingness to push the definitions of fiber, and the dynamics of the collector/artist relationship.
