Details:Quilts are a narrative art form, featuring themes that are political, spiritual, communal, and commemorative. Infused with history and memory, quilts map out intimate stories and legacies through a handcrafted language of design. Handstitched Worlds: The Cartography of Quilts is an invitation to read quilts as maps, tracing the paths of individual histories that illuminate larger historic events and cultural trends. Spanning the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries, this insightful and engaging exhibition presents eighteen quilts from the collection of the American Folk Art Museum in New York City. The quilts represent a range of materials, motifs, and techniques, including traditional early American examples and contemporary sculptural assemblages. Handstitched Worlds demonstrates how this often overlooked medium balances creativity with tradition and individuality with collective zeitgeist. A visible kinship between quilt-making and cartography is evident, from seams and roadways to quilt blocks and city blocks. The choice of fabric and design reveals insights into the topography of a quilt maker’s world and that individual’s place within it.
