Calling all contemporary fiber art and textile art enthusiasts! Visit our latest public installation as part of New York Fiber Arts Week, which runs from November 3-12. Follow the Thread, a remarkable festival, is set to weave its magic throughout the city, offering a rich and diverse program of exhibitions, installations, events, meetings, and conferences that will transport attendees from the world of art to sustainability, from Italian craftsmanship to high fashion.
Organized by ArteMorbida Textile Arts Magazine, curated by Barbara Pava with Executive Producer Maurita Cardone, one of the unique aspects of Follow the Thread is the integration of textile art into everyday life, with flagship stores and showrooms of international brands embracing this creative movement.
In partnership with the Ivy Brown Gallery, the Meatpacking District, is home to an immersive installation of Federica Patera and Andrea Sbra Perego, alongside Theda Sandiford's unique shopping cart creations.
The heart of the festival lies in the group exhibition titled "Threads of Our Time" at the Chelsea Market Gallery Space. Curated by Barbara Pavan, this exhibition features works by a diverse range of talented artists including Lanfranco Aceti, Elham M. Aghili, Angelica Bergamini, Michela Cavagna, Megan Klim, Laura Mega, F. Patera and A. Sbra Perego, Eva Petric, Michael Sylvan Robinson, and Judy Rushin-Knopf. These artists use fibers, threads, and textiles as their medium to convey the essence of contemporary life through their artistic expressions
