New Material as New Media: The Fabric Workshop and Museum at 25 Years

February 10, 2003–April 2003

Opening Reception:

Saturday, February 8, 2003
6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.



The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) presents New Material as New Media: The Fabric Workshop and Museum at 25 Years, a retrospective exhibition celebrating 25 years of collaborative projects with artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Morris, Kiki Smith, Glenn Ligon, Félix González Torres and Rachel Whiteread, to name but a few.

The exhibition, guest curated by Anne d'Harnoncourt, The George D. Widener Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and FWM Advisory Board Member, draws from FWM's vast and diverse collection of works of art, documentation and process material. Over the course of the past twenty five years, FWM has worked with over 400 artists-in-residence and produced over 5,500 works, some of them seminal works of contemporary art. The retrospective demonstrates the many ways in which FWM's renowned Artist-in-Residence Program has enabled contemporary artists working in many media–including sculpture, installation, video, painting, architecture and design–to experiment and create new works in fabric and other unconventional materials.
