Glenn Adamson - Art, Craft and Textiles

May 14,  10:00 am – 12:00 pm on Zoom 

Drawing on his thirty years of research into the topic of art’s relationship with craft, Glenn will talk about the important role of the textile medium in modern and contemporary culture. He will look particularly at Anni Albers, Sheila Hicks and Lenore Tawney as transformative figures and then introduce a handful of contemporary figures who are carrying on their legacy.

Glenn Adamson is the author of Fewer Better Things, The Hidden Wisdom of Objects and Craft, An American History. Both books can be purchased at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
