One hundred years after the founding of the Bauhaus, which considered the artist “an exalted artisan” and called for erasing the boundaries between art and crafts, America Weaves gathers a group of artists that expand the borders and possibilities of the action of weaving, embroidery, and interlacing throughout the entire continent.
