AbStranded brings together contemporary American artists who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. A prominent use of the hand looms large—through knitting, weaving, quilting and more—and suggests an alternative mode of communication within a digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.
