Collective Weaves, Installation Shot, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Printed by Anne Kirk Textiles, San Francisco

This sequence of curtains echoes exhibitions of modern textiles held at this institution under founding director Grace McCann Morley. Such displays were part of the museum’s mission, relating developments in fine art to designs for the modern world and home. The patterns seen here are based on logos and drawings from publications spanning from 1957-1976 by local and national lesbian and feminist organizations. The curtains provide insight into Morley’s life and function as a backdrop for the installation as a whole.
