Celebrating tapestry, embroidery, stitching, textiles, knitting, and knotting as used by visual artists worldwide, Vitamin T: Threads & Textiles in Contemporary Art by Phaidon Editors and Jenelle Porter is the latest in the celebrated Vitamin series in which leading curators, critics, and art professionals nominate living artists for inclusion.
Every volume includes short essays by critics, curators, and art historians, who focus on specific artists within a chosen area. Vitamin T takes an in-depth look at fiber work, textiles, and thread, created by over 100 artists from across the globe.
The book covers an extensive range of textile art forms, from tapestry to embroidery, stitching to knitting to textiles. The included artists were nominated by professionals from across the spectrum of the art world and incorporated cultures and perspectives from all over the globe. Each highlighted artist’s work is showcased in a two-to-four page spread and accompanied by a descriptive essay.
As boundaries between art and craft have blurred, artists have increasingly embraced these materials and methods, with the resulting works being coveted by collectors and exhibited in museums worldwide. Vitamin T is a vibrant and incredibly timely survey—the first of its kind. Learn more about the book on our Journal.
