Art with Fiber - on exhibit at The Rose Art Museum

On exhibit at The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University in Waltham MA, "John M Armleder: Too Much is Not Enough". from April 26- July 30, 2007. This show covers the fields of art, design and pop culture, and includes paintings, sculpture and mixed-media pieces. Of note to anyone who is interested in artists who use fiber in their art work, are three pieces that are made with fabric that is folded over stretcher strips:

"Matuita ma", 2001, folded fabric
"La ora i te forerei", 2001, folded silk
"Himene pirae", 2001, folded velvet

I couldn't find any images from the show on the web, but I did find a similar one, which you can look at, called Enter At Your Own Risk 14, 2000, folded polyester.
