Textile Arts Council presents a talk by Dilys Blum on American Art to Wear at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The American art to wear movement has been long overlooked and marginalized by art and craft historians alike. With fiber art now accepted in the art historical canon, Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Off the Wall: American Art Wear proposed a similar reevaluation, focusing on the art to wear movement’s pioneering artists who came of age between San Francisco’s Summer of Love in 1967 and the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. For these artists art and life were inseparable. The body became the armature for unique works that could be worn or alternatively be displayed on the wall or on a pedestal.
Dilys Blum is The Jack M and Annette Y Friedland Senior Curator of Costume and Textiles at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
