Crafting Change Exhibition: New Textile Work by Students and Faculty
Opening Reception, September 18th at 6:00 pm
The work of FIT students and faculty takes center stage in the Gallery FIT exhibition Crafting Change. Organized by the Textile/Surface Design Department in conjunction with New York Textile Month, the works featured in Crafting Change use long established techniques in a modern context to explore the shifting boundaries between art, design, and technology. The use of hand crafting techniques combined with digital processes, preserves tradition while pushing textiles into the future. Projects bridging science and textiles have the potential to revolutionize the fashion and textile industries, leading us to a more sustainable world. These works are promising examples of how FIT is successfully encouraging interdisciplinary mergers between craft, technology, and sustainability to usher textile arts into the 21st century.
