Lenore Tawney features in Off the Wall: American Art to Wear at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

 

The exhibition explores a generation of pioneering artists who used body-related forms to express a personal vision.⁣

Tawney's work Bound Man from 1957 features in the first section of the exhibition that illustrates how textile artists in the late ‘50s and ‘60s liberated tapestry weaving from the wall, adapting it to three-dimensional sculptural forms inspired by pre-Columbian weaving.⁣⁣⁣
