The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) presents the group exhibition Multiplied: Editioned Works from The Fabric Workshop and Museum. Throughout the history of the institution, Artists-in-Residence have collaborated with the studio staff to create a broad array of multiples that embody FWM’s spirit of innovation and experimentation in artistic practices. Multiplied features editioned objects ranging in materials and dimension—such as dolls, lamps, sculptural objects, and scarves—that are as diverse as the esteemed artists themselves: Daniel Arsham, Ecke Bonk, Moe Brooker, Robert Chambers, Dale Chihuly, Jim Drain, Hachivi Edgar Heap-of-Birds, Mary Heilmann, Tommy Joseph, Jiha Moon, Kiki Smith, and Robert Venturi.

About the Artist-in-Residence Program

The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) invites contemporary artists to create new work using experimental materials and techniques. This internationally acclaimed Artist-in-Residence Program hosts emerging and established regional, national, and international contemporary artists who have a demonstrated commitment to innovation and exploration. To that end, FWM supports artistic experimentation by providing honorariums and materials to artists, and employing its facilities and staff to address their creative needs.

Artists-in-residence are drawn from all disciplines, including painting, sculpture, architecture and design, conceptual and installation art, performance, and video. Working collaboratively with FWM’s staff of printers and technicians, artists are introduced to new techniques, materials, and resources, and are thus able to realize projects that would not otherwise be possible. Through this collaborative creative process, artists stretch the boundaries not only of their own work, and of the creative possibility of the various media, but also of the larger development of contemporary art.
