Pricked


The Museum of Arts & Design in NYC presents their exhibition Pricked: Extreme Embroidery now through March 9, featuring updated versions of handcraft traditions. I read about the exhibit in a great article in the NY Times about Pearl Lam, a Shanghai decorator who commissioned a sofa featuring hand-embroidered images from a gay bondage magazine (that part of the artwork must be on a different part of the sofa than what is shown below). A twin of Ms. Lam's sofa appears in the exhibition.
What a great addition a sofa like that would be in my family room. "Welcome Aunt Tillie....some tea and scones? And won't you sit over here on the divan....?"
