Artsy Applauds Orly Genger's "Politically-Charged" Fiber Work

A recent Artsy editorial recognized SAIC alum Orly Genger (Post-Bac 2002) among a handful of artists who connect "the history of craft as 'women’s work' to that of repressive domesticity" and use knitting and crocheting to interrogate sociopolitics.

The publication examined the distinction of Genger's public installations, noting that she "uses a technique traditionally associated with women and craft. This is the crux of the American artist’s practice, which reimagines, enlarges, and subtly lampoons big, hard-edged works made by men."
