Morgan Lehman is very pleased to present Woven Walls, a summer group exhibition featuring five artists whose unique practices mine the historical, material, and imagistic possibilities of textiles. The artworks on display occupy a range of formats including painting, sculpture, and installation, and utilize notions of the textile as both a source of inspiration and a generative tool for expanding the vocabulary of contemporary art. Here, dyed fabric is deployed like paint and becomes a means to channel color; patterns provide a framework for abstract compositional strategies; discarded garments become the building blocks of three-dimensional structures; weaving serves as a process of construction and material transformation; and the sociopolitical weight of the textile tradition initiates a conversation about human labor, sexual politics, and freedom.
