  • Faculty publications named "best art books of the year" by the New York Times

    Professor Julia Bryan-Wilson's new book Fray: Art and Textile Politics was selected by Holland Cotter as one of the "best art books of 2017" in the New York Times.  Assistant Professors Atreyee Gupta and Anneka Lenssen both contributed to another publication on the list, Postwar: Art Between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945-1965  (Haus der Kunst). 
     
    "Textile art, sometimes called fiber art, once occupied ambiguous terrain in a now-obsolete art vs. craft divide. Julia Bryan-Wilson’s book goes beyond arguing for fiber’s aesthetic legitimacy to demonstrating its political agency. And she does so by considering an enthralling range of hitherto untapped material: fantastic costumes designed by the 1970s queer theater troupe, the Cockettes; hand-sewn tapestries produced by Chilean artists depicting torture under the Pinochet regime; and the still-growing NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. Ms. Bryan-Wilson’s research is more than substantial, but her propulsive style makes the book a page-turner."
