Every Third Thursday of the month, gather in the lobby of BAMPFA to receive complimentary museum admission and to hear a short talk on a current exhibition given by a member of the GTU community. Our March talk is given by Rev. Gideon M. M'Imwonyo-Mbui (GTU PhD student, Theology and Ethics), on the exhibition Rosie Lee Tompkins: A Retrospective.
Rosie Lee Tompkins (1936–2006) is widely considered one of the most brilliant and inventive quiltmakers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Her reputation has grown to the point where her work is no longer considered solely within the context of quilting, but celebrated among the great American artistic achievements of our time. Rosie Lee Tompkins: A Retrospective is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work to date, featuring approximately seventy quilts, pieced tops, embroideries, assemblages, and decorated objects. It reveals Tompkins to be an artist of extraordinary variety, depth, and impact.
