Threaded Events

A contemplative moment at 'event of a thread' (photo by Abigail Doan)

It is true. Everyone is talking about Ann Hamilton's installation, 'event of a thread' at The Park Avenue Armory in NYC, and with good reason – it is modern interactive textile magic.

I particularly loved this quote from the exhibition's statement flyer: "Anni Albers, in writing for Encyclopedia Brittanica, reflected that all weaving traces back to the event of a thread."

How apropos for the times that we are living in and the efforts of so many who are trying to re-connect us with the warp and weft of identifying, sharing, and reviving thread traditions.

Here are just a few selections of what I consider to be exquisite events of a thread:
