Lyn Carter. 11th Line

Curator: Sarah Quinton, Textile Museum of Canada Chief curator

From February 3 2018 to May 6 2018

About —

Titled after the rural road where artist Lyn Carter lives and works, the exhibition 11th Line explores one of the most fundamental textile design elements – the stripe – and its graphic relationship to the landscape, evoking horizon lines, road grids and furrowed fields. The artist’s highly crafted sewn sculptures, drawings on paper and digitally printed fabric are poetic translations of the rhythms and patterns of personal space and vernacular architectures that are part of daily experience.

In partnership with the Textile Museum of Toronto.
