Some great weavers

This week I was reviewing old catalogs of the legendary textile art exhibition in Lausanne, Switzerland. Especially the issues of the 70s and 80s. At first I was shocked at the high percentage of female participation, I would say 80 percent! I also freaked out about how advanced was their textile language. Some names are well known today, such as Sheila Hicks, or Magdalena Abakanowicz, but I also met lots of artists who don’tt know at all. I’ll try to investigate more about them, because the more I know them the more I love tapestry. I hope you find it interesting. Have a great weekend!GerdaEdens
