While i think it was a bit presumptive of the writer to label it as feminist work, some “artspeak” can make the waters deeper (as long as it doesn’t muddy it):) I’m pleased that there *was* a review, as too often textile/fibre art shows get very short shrift in the critical eye, particularly in Canada. I do kind of resent the “quota of landscapes and grain elevators”–i think it’s narrow minded and too hipster a remark to give any credence to. I doubt that any of us was working a cliche when we created the work, and certainly not when we submitted. All this aside, i am pleased that a gallery was open to Monika’s curation and obviously with the response and attendance, others are equally as intrigued and receptive.
