Critical Walkthrough: Katherine Knauer on the Politics of Quilts

Quilter Katherine Knauer will lead a tour through the War and Pieced exhibition, exploring the relationship between quilts, politics, remembrance, and war.

Critical Walk-throughs consist of a 40-minute guided tour that is meant to offer an alternative perspective to the works on view. They include conversations with artists, scholars, and curators, providing an intimate opportunity to engage with the central themes and histories found in the artwork. The program is limited to 25 individuals.
