To support research and development activities for an exhibition tentatively entitled Christina Ramberg, which explores the artist’s interests in historical craft and dress and investigates her work in the context of exchange networks between teachers and students, formally educated and self-taught artists, and within the scope of local versus European artistic production and traditions. The grant supports local research travel, two national trips to relevant museums and archives, and the hiring of a Terra Foundation Research Fellow. The project is expected to lead to an exhibition as part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
