This exhibition examines whether there is a masculine aesthetic in quiltmaking. The exhibiting artists are part of a growing, loosely-knit network of male quilters who negotiate their interests and concerns through the intersections of quilting with new technologies and machine aesthetics; with expressions of masculinity and sexuality; and with personal fascinations such as heavy metal or science fiction.
Artists: Joe Cunningham, Luke Haynes, Jimmy McBride, Aaron McIntosh, Joel Otterson, Shawn Quinlan, and Ben Venom.
