Women’s Art Association of Canada

Thursday February 17—Lyn Carter

Clothing is Sculpture

“I seem to be fixated on forms that are possible with cloth as a constructed skin. It pleases me to make “women’s work” sculpture.  There is an implied collision of genders embodied in that statement that appeals to me.” 

Her focus on textiles has led to exhibitions in China at the 3rd Guangzhou Triennial, Guangdong Museum of Art, and the Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art 2016, Zhejiang Art Museum (Hangzhou, China). A solo exhibit  Lyn Carter: 11th Line, was organized by and exhibited at the Textile Museum of Canada (Toronto ON) in 2015/16.  Composed of site-specific sculptures, drawings and video, it toured to the Peterborough Art Gallery in 2017 and the Musée d’art de Joliette in 2018. Carter holds a degree from OCAD in Textile Design and an MFA  in Sculpture from York U.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the Women’s Art Association of Canada operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
