In the art world annum that was, things came up crafty. Ceramics and textiles have been the rage ever since the Whitney Biennial in March—there is even some weaving-like work, by Dianna Molzan, in The Forever Now,MoMA’s major of-the-moment survey of painting, opening this weekend. But as a reminder that what seems new is often the past bubbling to the surface, visit the last days of The Drawing Center’s Thread Lines, featuring 16 artists—some pioneers from the past, others reviving the tradition now—who stitch, sew, and weave their way into the gallery. Like that holiday scarf from your aunt who knits, this group show will get lost soon.
“Thread Lines” runs through December 14, at New York’s Drawing Center, 35 Wooster St.
