Anne Wilson: Wind/Rewind Weave documents an exhibition of the same title organized by the Knoxville Museum of Art and visual artist Anne Wilson to investigate the global crisis of production and skill-based textile labor. This volume includes evocative images of Wilson’s pieces on display, as well as beautiful, full-color illustrations of the textiles that provide an almost-tactile experience, photographs of artists at work, and diagrams of how the materials are made. Accompanying these images are essays by Glenn Adamson, Jenni Sorkin, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Philis Alvic, and Laura Y. Liu, which address the history of craft and textile production, while considering how Wilson uses craft and collaboration as potent political metaphors in art.
