An Industrious Art: Innovation in Pattern & Print at The Fabric Workshop
An Industrious Art documents the first fourteen years of The Fabric Workshop (1977–2001), from the narratives of the workshop’s founding and remarkable growth to commentary on its art-historical precedents and instructive descriptions of procedural techniques. Accompanied by over two hundred color and black-and-white illustrations, the book documents the results of an international group of painters, sculptors, architects, photographers, and ceramicists – each bending their familiar pursuits to boldly reshape and redefine the boundaries of art.
