The Armory Show 2020: Perspectives: Jana Vander Lee

Pier 90, 711 12th Avenue, New York, March 4 - 8, 2020
Booth 306

American artist Jana Vander Lee was a central figure in the art scene of Houston of the 1970s - 1980s. An artist, writer, curator and community organizer, Vander Lee was instrumental in organizing important exhibitions introducing fiber art into the mainstream fine art field in Houston, as well as maintaining her own practice, creating large and medium scale tapestries. By the early 80s, Houston was full of artist-run exhibition spaces and start up publications, and was imbued with a daring, innovative spirit. Vander Lee wrote for many of the publications, and organized numerous exhibitions celebrating fiber art and sculpture. During this time, she produced over 100 tapestries in five series, a selection of which will be on view in Inman Gallery's Perspectives presentation at the 2020 Armory Show, booth 306
