The exhibition, curated by Kristin Beck, addresses the modern approach of makers that employ negative space, saturated colors, non-traditional block work outside of a traditional quilt grid. This modern approach allows for opportunities to produce work that reference social justice and diversity issues within sewing textiles together with thread and needle. In short, the quilts are graphic, bold, and improvisational. They are statement makers. They are rule breakers. They are storytellers. They are utilitarian works of art.
