A Quilted Lament to Loved and Lost MoMA

Amy Wilson’s Soft MoMA is a quilted, free-hanging lament to the loved and lost intimate museum experience the artist enjoyed as a child. Step inside its enveloping folds, where, via two quilted alter egos, Wilson reflects on her discomfort in a shiny new museum world where everyone else seems to be smiling. The quilt made its debut at BravinLee the day after MoMA announced plans to raze the American Folk Art Museum building to create a giant glass lobby. (The show is up through tomorrow.)

    We need greater visibility of folk art, more respect for folk art, and more understanding of the importance of folk art.
