A roughly H-Shaped woven textile form is mounted on a bright white wall. The parallel lines that form the H are woven with bright orange and apricot-colored fibers featuring subtle variations in patterning, texture and layering; these are crossed by a gauzy white fabric.

Join List Center Assistant Curator Selby Nimrod for a tour of Hana Miletić: Soft Services

This guided exhibition walkthrough and conversation encourages visitors to take a closer look at the works in the Brussels-based artist Hana Miletić’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States. The presentation features selections from her signature hand loomed Materials series, and a related group of Jacquard loomed works under the title Softwares, both of which are based on the artist’s snapshots of stopgap repairs to buildings and other objects in urban public space. Upon closer consideration, one will discover the intricacies of the handwoven and hand manipulated textile forms, and the attention of affect and care embedded within.
