The visual language of textiles is universal and multivarious, in weaving, knitting, quilting, embroidery, and basketry. This exhibit explores the motives artists have in using textiles in their creative practice. Other themes are the mechanization of textile production, the roots of computing in the Jacquard loom, and patterning in modernist textiles, painting, and sculpture.
