Bringing together more than 40 contemporary artists, BAM Biennial 2012 explores one of the most thriving media today: fiber. With its versatility and ready availability, fiber has long had its firm place in the Do-It-Yourself movement, yet is often underexposed in the traditional art world. Shining a spotlight on fiber art created in the Northwest, BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet celebrates both the region's rich traditions as well as new expressions, where concepts of art and craft merge.
