Dear *|FNAME|*, or Members,

Threads of Power: Lace from the Textilmuseum St. Gallen opens at Bard Graduate Center on September 16, 2022.  This exhibition marks the US debut of more than 150 examples of lace from the extensive collection of the Textilmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland. It traces the development of lace from its sixteenth-century origins to the present—the first large-scale American exhibition in New York in 40 years to tell this story.
