There's always something new at Manhattan's oldest house

The Fabric of Emancipation

In partnership with Harlem Needle Arts, this exhibition interprets New York’s African-American material history through contemporary pieces of needle and fiber arts which draw on centuries-old traditions. A juried selection of artists have created dynamic works inspired by topics important to our community and the history of the Mansion, such as colonialism, the impact of history on the experience of the African Diaspora today, and what it means to be a textile artist.
