KNITTING NATION Phase 15 at MAD
On Sunday, March 6, 2016, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) will present KNITTING NATION Phase 15: Weaving Walls, a time-based installation and live labor performance by textile artist and designer Liz Collins. From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Collins and a “factory crew” of six professional weaving artists and designers will transform the Museum’s atrium and lobby into a knitting and weaving factory, creating a continuous soft wall that will climb the Museum stairwell as the day progresses. The performance explores the dynamic relationship between textile and architecture, performance and collectivity, and considers apparel manufacturing and human labor.
