This exhibit features research based textile works created by students of Lynne Heller’s third year Materials Art and Design course called Textile History Since 1800s. Each of the textile pieces respond to historical processes, techniques, materials and fabrics or iconic fashion styles from the 19th to 21st centuries while

addressing the traditional and contemporary role of textiles in culture.

Using stitchwork, beading, dyeing, quilting and sewing techniques, the students were able to examine and incorporate ideas on language, grief, identity or social conditions and cultural movements from the punk movement of the 70s to Abstract Expressionism movement after World War II.
