The Gee’s Bend Tradition (Feb. 5 – April 24, 2015) will explore the historical roots of the Gee’s Bend community, its design aesthetics, and its ongoing quilting tradition. Gee’s Bend is a rural community southwest of Selma, Alabama, located on a peninsula created by the dramatic bends in the Alabama River. Most of the residents are descendants of the slaves who worked the plantation that once occupied the site. The quilters of Gee’s Bend are known for their unexpected pattern combinations, bold geometries that break free of rigid grids, and their asymmetrical improvisations that suggest the minimalist patterns of the Amish and recall the innovations of 20th century modernism. The Gee’s Bend Tradition at Lehman will present quilts along with prints by four of the quilters, exploring the designs in a new medium and underscoring the continuation of the tradition. A study area will include photographs of Gee’s Bend in the 1930s,
taken by Arthur Rothstein and Marion Post Wolcott for the Farm Security Administration/Office of War
Information Collection (Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division).
