The American Folk Art Museum in Manhattan have a lot of old quilts in their collection and earlier this year I went along to see an exhibition called Alt_Quilt which showcased some of these alongside modern quilts they have inspired. Three contemporary American artists Sabrina Gschwandtner, Luke Haynes and Stephen Sollins, created quilts from old film footage, used clothing and envelopes respectively.

The space is quite small, just three rooms but the exhibition was top notch, so keep an eye out for more!
Popular Patchwork magazine have published my review with lots of pictures in their May issue (out now in the UK, Popular Quilting will be out in the US next week).
If you live on the West Coast and are interested to see more quilts by Luke Haynes click for his website and calender of upcoming shows. He has a show opening in LA on Friday 25th April and is running a class at Sew Modern on May 3rd
