Anne Wilson: Wind/Rewind Weave documents an exhibition of the same title organized by the Knoxville Museum of Art and visual artist Anne Wilson to investigate the global crisis of production and skill-based textile labor. This volume includes evocative images of Wilson’s pieces on display, as well as beautiful, full-color illustrations of the textiles that provide an almost-tactile experience, photographs of artists at work, and diagrams of how the materials are made. Accompanying these images are essays by Glenn Adamson, Jenni Sorkin, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Philis Alvic, and Laura Y. Liu, which address the history of craft and textile production, while considering how Wilson uses craft and collaboration as potent political metaphors in art.
Anne Wilson: Wind/Rewind/Weave won the Trade Illustrated category and was runner-up for Best in Show in the 2011 Chicago Book Clinic awards competition. As well, the book won second prize in the 2012 AAM Museum Publications Design Competition.
