Resolutions: A Stitch in Time

In An American Vision, Edward Lucie-Smith described Resolutions as a post modern project in that it subverts the traditions of both needlework and proverbs. The exhibition – which premiered at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and traveled to eight venues – consists of a series of painted and needleworked images created by Judy Chicago and executed by a group of highly accomplished needleworkers, many of whom had worked with Chicago on previous projects. Begun in 1994 with the intention of addressing the problem of the seemingly widespread breakdown of social values, Resolutions reinterprets traditional adages and proverbs for the future. A collaboratively produced Sampler introduces the exhibit which groups the work into such age-old values as Family, Responsibility, Tolerance, Human Rights, Conversation, Hope, and Change. Resolutions puts forth a playful contemporary vision of old-fashioned ideas, casting these in a multi-cultural and contemporary perspective.
