Man-Made: Contemporary Male Quilters in Los Angeles

Man-Made: Contemporary Male Quilters

January 25 – May 3, 2015
This exhibition presents contemporary male quiltmakers whose contemporary art backgrounds inform their quilting process. The exhibiting artists are part of a growing, loosely-knit network of male quilters who negotiate their interests and concerns through the intersections of quilting with new technologies and machine aesthetics; with expressions of masculinity and sexuality; and with personal fascinations such as heavy metal or science fiction.
Artists: Joe Cunningham, Luke Haynes, Jimmy McBride, Aaron McIntosh, Joel Otterson, Dan Olfe, Shawn Quinlan, and Ben Venom.
