Orly Cogan: Don’t Call Me Princess

October 5, 2018 - March 2, 2019

As a leading artist in the fiber arts movement Orly Cogan uses embroidery, painting, and drawing to create work that explores feminism, domesticity, and the constantly changing role of women in society. Cogan’s materials — vintage printed fabrics and found embroidery — speak to a history of women’s work in the domestic sphere. Her hand-embroidered alterations and additions bring to the pieces a contemporary and fantastical slant, as she uses the fabric as space to create new worlds and provocative visions that test the boundaries of traditional female stereotypes.
