 Past Exhibition

foldoverfold: Marcie Miller Gross

Kansas City artist Marcie Miller Gross explores the poetic possibilities of utilitarian objects in her often massive or towering textile sculptures. In past work, she used beach towels, clothing, and hospital surgical towels as her primary materials, each embodying a particular personal history. For her exhibition at the Kemper Museum, she uses nearly 6,000 new cotton huck towels to create an environment that simultaneously explores spatial dynamics and the hidden histories of labor. This is her first solo museum exhibition.
