Call for fiber related work- down to sleep, work inspired by the bed.
down to sleep, an exhibit curated by Joetta Maue, exhibit will showcase fiber and fiber related works that have to do with the bed. Joetta has been fascinated by the bed in her own work and critical writing for a number of years and is excited to explore this liminal space while simultaneously introducing the New England area to her unique curatorial style and the incredible quality of contemporary fiber work that is being made today.
Work can directly or indirectly reference the bed in any way; the actual bed itself, the experience of the bed, the acts that occur within the bed, the emotional space of the bed, sleep, and/or the bedroom itself. Please interpret openly.
