Handstitched Worlds: The Cartography of Quilts

Quilts are a narrative art form, featuring themes that are political, spiritual, communal, and commemorative. Quilts are infused with history and memory, mapping out intimate stories and legacies through a handcrafted language of design. Handstitched Worlds: The Cartography of Quilts" is an invitation to read quilts as maps, tracing the paths of individual histories that illuminate larger historic events and cultural trends. Spanning the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries, this insightful and engaging exhibition presents twenty-three quilts from the collection of the American Folk Art Museum in New York City. The quilts represent a range of materials, motifs, and techniques, from traditional early American examples to contemporary sculptural assemblages.
