From the MFAH:
“Olga de Amaral has pioneered her own visual language within the fiber arts movement. Her radical experimentation with color, form, material, composition, and space transforms weaving from a flat design element into an architectural component that defies the confines of any genre or medium.
The MFAH is the debut venue for Olga de Amaral: To Weave a Rock. This major touring retrospective spotlights the Colombian artist (born 1932) and her prolific, six-decade career through some 50 works that trace Amaral’s architectural investigations of the woven form.
Four thematic sections tell the story of Amaral’s creative spirit: “Radical Materialism,” “The Rebel Warp,” “Alchemy,” and “The Line.” Also included are two galleries devoted to her immersive Brumas (Mists) and Estelas (Steles) series.”
