TALENT! – GRADUATE TEXTILE WORK{0}

SEPTEMBER 21–30 – INSTALLATION –TALENT! is an ongoing exhibition series featuring graduate works from the world’s leading art and design schools. Following the success of three first editions in Eindhoven and Milan (2008–09), as well as a current incarnation at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London (until September 24, 2017), TALENT! comes to New York Textile Month at the Invisible Dog Art Center – a raw space in a vast converted factory building with a charmed history and an open-ended mission: to create, from the ground up, a new kind of interdisciplinary arts center.

Housed together with Eileen Fisher’s exhibition Circular by Design, this pop-up exhibition features students from Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute and Kent State University. The variety of textile talent showcased here is a comprehensive reflection of young textile creativity today and the world at large.

Also on display is a Talking Textiles installation, honoring the 17 finalists from the Dorothy Waxman International Textile Design Prize. Supported by Mohawk Group, this year’s winner is Wendy Andreu from Design Academy Eindhoven.

New York Textile Month is a New School initiative celebrating global textile creativity and innovation at events held throughout New York City during the month of September. The festival was established by Lidewij Edelkoort, Dean of Hybrid Design Studies at The New School and founder of a new Textiles MFA starting in 2018 at Parsons School of Design.
