MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A new exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum presents woven works of art that pair new technologies with centuries-old craft knowledge to create distinctive, painterly compositions.

Opening Feb. 25, 2022, in the Museum’s Bradley Family Gallery, Currents 38: Christy Matson features more than 40 woven objects by the Los Angeles-based artist who has helped reshape the traditional medium of weaving into a contemporary art form.

Margaret Andera is the interim chief curator & curator of contemporary art at the MAM. She joined us ahead of the opening to talk about the exhibit.
