Design and Fabric Technology: Pushing the Limits

On View: 
Tuesday, May 4, 1993 to Sunday, September 26, 1993

This exhibition spotlights designs that resulted from major international collaborations between textile designers and fabric producers—collaborations that combine art and technology to push beyond the limitations normally imposed by the commercial market. Objects include screen-printed textiles created by the Netherlands-based designer, Ulf Moritz, who joined Dutch producer De Ploeg and the German firm Taurus, as well as whimsical Jacquard woven fabrics produced by American textile artists Patricia Kinsella and Sheila O’Hara, who were sponsored by the German company Müller-Zell.
