Unconventional and Unexpected: American Quilts Below the Radar, 1950–2000

February 14, 2015 to May 17, 2015

Never before has there been an exhibition of maverick quilts like this one. Unconventional and Unexpected shows how primarily anonymous, often self-taught women working below the radar of the art world have often produced quilts for everyday use in their homes, that nonetheless articulate many of the same issues that have been at the core of the development of modern art during the second half of the twentieth century. The exhibition presents a selection of visually stunning pieced quilts and quilt tops from the mid to late 20th century.
