Cranbrook Art Museum

Craft Research Fund—Exhibition Grant

2020

Craft Research Fund Grant to present a retrospective exhibition, monograph, and short film documenting the work of Olga de Amaral. Olga de Amaral, one of the most recognized names in Latin American art, lives and works in her native Bogotá, Colombia. Tracing the artist’s career over five decades, Olga de Amaral: To Weave a Rock is the artist’s first major museum retrospective in the United States, consisting of some 60 works that elucidate her seminal influence and technical innovations. The artist was first introduced to the medium of fiber during her studies with Marianne Strengell at Cranbrook Academy of Art from 1954-1955. Since that time her work has prolifically evolved beyond the functional qualities of weaving into more experimental and sculptural woven forms.
