Text: English, French (translation)From Library Journal:
The use of textiles in art, except for tapestry, is a recent phenomenon. Since 1960, however, there has been an immense variety, from woven "minitextiles" (works less than 8 inches long) to installations of fiber sculpture that fill an entire gallery. The authors trace the history of fabrics and tapestry, and the development of contemporary textile art. Knowledgeable readers may question why they consider Christo a textile artist and fail to mention the needlework projects of Judy Chicago. Nevertheless, this is a fairly good overview, profusely and beautifully illustrated, of the evolvement of an ancient craft. Eleanor Riley, Getty Conservation Inst. Lib., Marina del Rey, Cal.
