SILKING SPIDERS, CONSTRUCTING A FARADAY CAGE AND DECOMMISSIONING GUNS: Producing Contemporary Art at The Fabric Workshop and Museum
Mary Anne Friel is a Master Printer and Project Coordinator for the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia. The FWM curates a widely respected Artists in Residence program which enables artists to achieve challenging projects by connecting and fostering interaction with a broad range of specialists in science, industry, media and design.
This collaborative, experimental approach to creating new work has the capacity to open the parameters of an artist’s practice, and in turn each artist’s project demands the institution to stretch beyond its current body of knowledge, and to reinvent its role. At Linden Tree's November edition, Ms. Friel will discuss the collaborative development of a select number of projects.
With the FWM, Ms. Friel has realized individual projects for Chris Burden, Doug Aitken, Rachel Whiteread, Ed Ruscha, Carrie Mae Weems and Mike Kelly, among many others. The works have been widely exhibited and published nationally and internationally, and are included in the permanent collections of Tate Gallery London, Museum Moderner Kunst Vienna, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Founded in 1977, The Fabric Workshop and Museum has developed from an ambitious experiment into a renowned institution comprised of its Artist in Residence (AIR) Program, a permanent collection, in-house and touring exhibitions, and educational programming.
