Lace in Translation

The Design Center at Philadelphia University has received a Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts to create an exhibition entitled: Lace in Translation. Lace in Translation will be the first exhibition produced by The Design Center in conjunction with its new interpretive initiative, The Fabric of Philadelphia. Three contemporary art/design studios, whose works are often inspired by traditional lace imagery, are mining the historic lace collection at The Design Center (TDC) for inspiration. These Dutch and Canadian art/design teams are being commissioned to create new, site-specific works for installation in the Center’s galleries and on its adjoining grounds during the fall and winter of 2009/10.
