FABRICation is a traveling exhibition from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, hosted by the Avenir Museum as a thoughtful encounter with textiles and the art of fabricating-by-hand. The exhibition looks at the intersection where textiles and fine art meet — and materials and manual labor are prized — to consider how our material world is made, and to encourage the art of "slow looking"
