Art Materialized organizes the objects created at the Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia since its inception in 1977. By manipulating everyday experiences with fabric, the reader is induced to contemplate the ordinary, domestic uses of art. The catalogue, which accompanies the circulating exhibition curated by Michael A. Quigley, includes essays by Sarah McFadden and Carter Ratcliff commenting on the historical perspective of textile-based art and features artists who sought projects outside the restrictions of the commercial fabric industry.
