"Amish Quilts Meet Modern Art" places fifty high-quality Amish quilts from the period between 1878-1950 in an animated dialogue with contemporary art. In fourteen exhibition areas the exhibition asks questions of both the quilts and contemporary art, on various levels related to fundamental themes of human existence and forms of artistic expression. The respective Amish positions, which seem simple and complicated at once, are placed in opposition to the tension-filled, self-reflexive, and ambiguous statements of the contemporary artworks. This includes works by Andrea Büttner, Winfred Gaul, Wade Guyton, Mike Kelley, Urs Lüthi, Beate Passow, Arne Quinze and Hans Peter Reuter.

As a writer covering textiles, art, and craft, Linzee Kull McCray wondered just how deeply fiber artists were influenced by their surroundings. Focusing on midwestern art quilters in particular, she put out a call for entries and nearly 100 artists responded; they were free to define those aspects of midwesterness that most affected their work. The artists selected for inclusion in this book embrace the Midwest s climate, land, people, and culture, and if they don t always embrace it wholeheartedly, then they use their art to react to it. The proof can be seen in the varied, powerful quilts in this energizing book. "

The Changing Boundaries and Nature of the Modern Art World

Concentrating on the shifting boundaries and definition of art, Richard Kalina offers a panoramic view of the contemporary art scene over the last 30 years. His focus is on the ongoing development of concepts, the transformation of art worlds and the social matrices in which they are created. Discussing painting in general and abstract painting in particular, his survey takes in photorealism, sculpture and art forms found outside of the modernist tradition. Kalina's group of artists includes Mel Bochner, Joan Mitchell, Cy Twombly, Franz West, and Alma Thomas who, in their ongoing projects, explicitly or implicitly questioned the aesthetic assumptions of their times. Merging an examination of animating philosophies and context - political, social, and personal - with a sharply focused look at the works of art themselves, Kalina brings us closer to understanding the social matrices in which art is embedded and responds to bigger questions about the object nature of the work of art in today's world.
