Seeing Red Juried into Form and Function

“Seeing Red,” a quilt that protests the inhumane treatment of migrants at the U.S.–Mexico border, has been juried into “Form and Function: Fiber Arts for the 21st Century,” at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.

Mounted in the Hallway and Porcella Gallery, the exhibition is the museum’s Second Artist Members Biennial and is being installed in two parts:
October 20, 2019—November 24, 2019
November 27, 2019—January 12, 2020

Seeing Red will be in the first installation.

Juried by artist and curator Karen Gutfreund, Form and Function showcases works in both traditional and new media that emphasize art over craft with bold use of artistic elements—line, space, shape, form, texture, and color to tell an individual story. In a statement the museum said:

Fiber artists utilize a multitude of methods to bridge craft and design, invoke new artistic concepts, and alter or refresh views of fiber. Each of our SJMQT Artist’s Members brings a personal vision and sensibility to his or her cloth. We want to celebrate this diversity and this exhibition is intended to promote an appreciation of fiber arts in the broader community.
