About the Event

Join us for a lively conversation with world-renowned tapestry artist and weaver Helena Hernmarck. Born in Sweden, Hernmarck is best known for her monumental tapestries designed for architectural settings. Her designs derive from sources ranging from photographs, to watercolors, to handwritten letters, and even from the texture of wool itself. She has supported Swedish textile arts throughout her career, collaborating with Swedish spinners, dyers and weavers on each commission. Hernmarck’s work is in the collections of the MOMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the LA County Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and other institutions. Her latest installation, Flowers is destined for Manhattan's Hudson Yards development.
