The TAC AIR Scholarship Fund grants free tuition to one artist or designer working with textiles. Scholarship recipients demonstrate commitment to their art practice, identify with a historically underrepresented community in the arts and state the need for financial assistance to participate in the program and advance their artistic practice.

With Care showcases a variety of small textile artworks by 60 artists and designers. A majority of these pieces were created during the 2020 quarantine in the homes of New York City and beyond. These intimate production settings manifested art objects and wearables that are charged with immense love. The care poured into each piece becomes apparent through the attention to detail, meticulous construction and range of unique hand crafted techniques. The form of the wall labels throughout the show are fashioned as care instructions, usually found inside mass-produced garments. This serves as a reminder of our closeness to textiles everyday, our mundane yet political proximity to textile industry production and labor, and the deep necessity to care for objects as well as each other.


About Textile Arts Center

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unite the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven—common denominators around the world. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
