An Industrious Art: Innovation in Pattern & Print at The Fabric Workshop

1

Description

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.
