The Box Project
This remarkable group of thirty-six commissioned works by international artists was assembled by Lloyd Cotsen between 2004 and 2013. Cotsen invited weavers, sculptors, painters, designers, and dyers to create a work with fiber that would fit in one of two box sizes. Artists could choose between a 14” x 14” x 3” and a 24” x 14” x 3” clamshell box. The objective was to encourage fiber artists to explore spatial limitations and to challenge artists who worked primarily on a single plane to expand into other geometries. The Box Project collection includes works from:
Ana Lisa Hedstrom
