If you’ve been following Wooster Collective, you know that we love to honor guerilla textile artists. With our sister company, BOND/360, we’ve been lucky enough to acquire an amazing new film: YARN, that celebrates amazing textile artists.
The film opens this Friday June 24th at the IFC Center (323 Ave of the Americas) and we would love to see you there. Filmmaker Una Lorenzen will be present for Q&As opening weekend, moderated by VOGUE Knitting’s Trisha Malcolm on Friday evening.
Check out our new movie poster and trailer below!
About the film:
Meet the artists who are redefining the tradition of knit and crochet, bringing yarn out of the house and into the world. Reinventing our relationship with this colorful tradition, YARN weaves together wool graffiti artists such as Olek, circus performers, and structural designers into a visually-striking look at the women who are making a creative stance while building one of modern art’s hottest trends.
