Los Angeles-based Pae White’s single work in the Biennial, Untitled, Still, 2010, is a massive cotton tapestry depicting white smoke.  The interpretation in an explanatory paragraph draws a simple contrast between the airy white smoke and the rigid weave of the tapestry, a spectrum of material with raw cotton approximately at its center.

    Good choice to focus one work only.

    Is it art or craft? If it is a machine woven, computer generated weave pattern taken from a photograph, does that make it less art than if it was hand woven like a traditional tapestry?

    It looks like it was made to order. Does that matter?

    Are tapestries becoming chic again? Is that why it was included in the exhibit? It is interesting that the two big pieces that greet visitors on different floors descending from the elevator are two big tapestries. One is rough and hand-made, the other refined and machine made.
