Paradigm Gallery Stitches Together a Beautiful New Group Show

Jun 23, 2017 - Jul 22, 2017Paradigm, Philadelphia

Stitched: Part II, an exhibition of fabric and embroidery works, is currently on view at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia. The show features a wide array of artists using stitching techniques to make vividly detailed and textured works.

By focusing on contemporary use of fabric and embroidery and stitching techniques, the show breaks from the traditional view of fabric and embroidery works as craft, and presenting these mediums instead as fine art. The exhibition elevates this medium from the domestic sphere, positioning it within the realm of contemporary visual culture.
