“The Colorful World of Kaffe Fasset” at American Museum in Britain through November 12, 2014

April 13, 2014

The Colorful World of Kaffe Fasset is showing at American Museum in Britain located at Claverton Manor in Bath through November 2, 2014. The exhibit spans his fifty years working as an artist and colorist.
Over one hundred works of textile art – quilts, knitwear, needlepoint, and beading are on display.
This is the grandest show of my career – every item is part of an intricate opera of colour. I have always wanted this approach to my work, but other museum designers and curators have steered me to a rather mixed approach in my exhibitions.This show is so unique to me because it explains in a visceral way my growing obsession with the power of colour. My hope and conviction is that this exhibition at the American Museum in Britain will show the grey and beige clad young the sensual thrill of pure colour. I still feel vital! I want my message to come across in this mood altering show – I’m flying high on colour.This show is closer to my desires than ever before in my many, many presentations around the world.(Kaffe Fassett, 12 March 2014)
