      The Disappearing City Amy Wilson, 2015 Top about the project. Exhibition: March 19 – April 24, 2015 Hudson Guild Gallery, 441 W. 26th Street, Chelsea, New York Tuesdays — Fridays / 10:00 AM —7:00 PM / Saturdays 1:00 — 4:00 PM Opening Reception: Thursday, March 19th, 6:00 – 7:30 PM Artist Amy Wilson led a series of workshops with a group of senior citizens from Hudson Guild Adult Programs and the Greenwich House. The project uses quilt-making to encourage long-time elderly residents, most of whom are immigrants, to engage with their past through the lens of gentrification. This series of three-hour workshops took place weekly at the Hudson Guild Senior Center over the course of eight weeks, and will continue at the Greenwich House for an additional eight weeks. Each senior will produce a quilted work, approximately 36 x 36 inches in size, commemorating their starkest and most personal memories of New York City since they arrived there. The first step of the creative process was for each participant to choose a story and sketch out their quilt. Then, using embroidery and appliqué, they worked on the imagery, blocking out the main elements with pieces of fabrics and embroidering the details. The last part of the workshop was dedicated to turning these “fabric drawings” into quilts by stitching through stuffing and a second layer of fabric. Throughout the workshops, Amy Wilson discussed the status of crafts as an art form, and addressed basic aesthetic concepts such as composition, representation and the contested dichotomy between high and low forms of art. The finished quilts are to be exhibited at the Hudson Guild Gallery and at the Greenwich House, making the project visible to both the local communities and a wider audience of art enthusiasts. At the end of the project, each senior will retrieve his or her quilt, which, one can imagine, will be passed on to children and grandchildren as part of their family legacy. The Disappearing City utilizes craft-making to convey a story and a sense of history. Indeed, traditional American quilts in the 18th and 19th century were not only practical items, but were also used to mark important moments in a person’s life such as births and weddings. Quilts often contained a great deal of information and details pertaining to individuals and, as a result, came to play a large role in preserving family history. Re-occurring motifs such as family trees helped develop and elaborate overlooked parts of American folk history.
