A Little Tension: Art and Activism
Participating artists in The Fiber Matrix discuss the power of textile art and the decision to showcase traditional textile art and quilts juxtaposed with works that reference contemporary societal issues in a way that alters the nature and perception of quilting; transforming its use from one of comfort to one that provokes, incites and creates tension.

The Fiber Matrix is a
collection of works that represent the versatility of textiles and the myriad of ways they can be used to create objects of utility, works of art and pedagogical instruments and facilitate thought provoking dialogue about a variety of contemporary
and historical topics.
The exhibit illustrates an awareness of how our socio-political landscape can be interpreted in the context of a textile installation, in the same way these themes are expressed in traditional fine art.
