Fiber Optic at Minus Space

Joell Baxter, Scrim / Screen, 2015, site-specific installation, screenprinted paper, glue & pushpins, 106 x 247 inches


November 7 – December 19, 2015 

MINUS SPACE is delighted to present the group exhibition Fiber Optic, highlighting several generations of artists innovating at the intersection of geometry and fiber. The exhibition will feature works by fifteen artists from across the country, including Anni Albers, Joell Baxter, Samantha Bittman, Chris Bogia, Martha Clippinger, Gabriel Dawe, Michelle Grabner, Lynne Harlow, Linda King Ferguson, Victoria Munro, Gabriel Pionkowski, Carrie Pollack, Sue Ravitz, Stephen Westfall, and Emi Winter. 

Over the past decade, there has been a strong resurgence of interest among contemporary artists in traditional forms associated with fiber and textiles. Fiber Optic will feature geometric, patterned, and color-based work across a wide array of media, including weaving, needlepoint, photography, painting, print, sculpture, and installation. As a spiritual and material touchstone for many of the participating artists, the exhibition will begin with a single, patterned gouache on paper study by the late, legendary Bauhaus artist and weaver Anni Albers (1899-1994). The exhibition will continue with artists Gabriel Dawe, Sue Ravitz, and Chris Borgia, who will present stitched, embroidered, and appliqued works comprised primarily of colored string or yarn. 

Fiber Optic will also feature a new impastoed painting by Michelle Grabner depicting a gingham fabric pattern; Samantha Bittman’s black and white pattern painting over a handwoven textile; Victoria Munro’s brightly-colored cotton duck weaving using a painting stretcher as a loom; Linda King Ferguson’s lozenge-shaped acrylic painting on cut stretched linen; Gabriel Pionkowski’s deconstructed work with cut, woven, plaited, and painted canvas; Carrie Pollack’s photographs of rugs digitally printed in grayscale onto linen; Lynne Harlow’s repurposed Fender amplifier grill cloth mounted over a wooden stretcher; and Joell Baxter’s large-scale, chromatic window installation consisting of screenprinted, cut, and woven papers. The exhibition will conclude with large wool weavings by Emi Winter, Martha Clippinger, and Stephen Westfall, which were produced in collaboration with traditional master weavers in Teotitl├ín del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico. 

We are grateful to the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, Hionas Gallery, James Cohan Gallery, Lennon Weinberg, Outlet, and The Hole for their generous assistance with this exhibition.
