The Work in Progress (WiP) at the Textile Arts Center is a behind the scenes look into the studio practice of contemporary artists and designers, to engage the public in a dialogue surrounding innovation in the field of textiles.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The selected artist will take over TAC Manhattan’s store-front window for one month and (re)create an active studio of their work. Displays will feature tools, materials and their artwork in various stages of progress. The program focuses on engaging the public with the work of textile artists and give an inside look into an artist’s studio. WiP artists will maintain “live studio” times where they can interact with the community and discuss their processes and techniques. The artist will also leave behind a clear visual narrative so the public can get a glimpse of “work in progress” even when the artist isn’t present. This is an ideal program for artists who enjoy speaking about their creative process to the public and want to take advantage of a large Manhattan store-front to promote and display their work.
