A DECADE OF DESIGN; Hand and Machine Problems of Display

By Stuart PRESTON

FOR the next two months the whole of the Museum of Modern Art's ground floor will be given over to "Textiles U.S.A.," one of the most lavish and imaginative exhibitions ever installed here and the first to be devoted exclusively to American fabric design.
