Quilt + Resist: Art, Politics, Storytelling

Woman Made Gallery, 2150 S Canalport Ave Suite 4A3, Chicago, IL 60608

Exhibition Dates: Nov 9 - Dec 1, 2018

Entry Deadline: August 31, 2018

Description: Quilting covers so much ground. As comfort, resistance, community, chronicle, mystery, banner, beauty. The act of stitching, piecing, fragments into story. Or pattern. Or proclamation. 

The history/herstory of quilts spans domestic, political, artistic, religious and economic spheres. Only fitting that quilting collects pieces from each of these realms, arranges and overlaps, then binds them together, to tell a more complete story and create a vibrant picture of our tangled world.

What forms do quilts take in 2018? What materials are used in this era of excess? What stories surface again and again? And who
is telling them in quilts?

Woman Made Gallery seeks quilt work by artists of all stripes. Open to work whether pictorial or abstract, story or symbol, political, personal, or any combination. 
Application fee: $30 for up to 3 images plus one detail per image if needed
