Art with Fiber - on exhibit at the ICA-Boston

On March 11, 2007, I posted information about work on exhibit at the Institute of Contemporary Art - Boston with fiber related materials as a main element. I made another visit to the ICA last week, and these artists had pieces that are on exhibit at this time:

Tara Donovan had two pieces, "Untitled (Rubber Bands)", 2006, a relief print from a matrix of rubber bands, and "Untitled (Pins)", 2003, a very large box shaped sculpture that was made of straight pins.

Mona Hatoum had "Pin Rug", 1998-99, that was a rug made of straight pins. (Sorry. No visuals on the web.)
Ambreen Butt had two pieces. One was "Multiplicité (AB95) from the series Cirque du Monde", 2007, which was created using watercolor, white gouache and thread on Mylar and handmade paper.

Also on exhibit is Louise Bourgeois's first solo exhibition in sixty years. In her exhibit, she had two untitled pieces that were made with fiber. I couldn't find any of these pieces on the web, so I'm sorry there are no links to visuals.
