Every Fiber of My Being | October 10 through November 1, 2019
Featuring works by Bisa Butler, Jessica Campbell, Luis Flores, Nano Hernandez, and Preta Wolzak, this exhibition explores contemporary image-making that employs fibers as material. From Nano Hernandez’s embroidered portraits to Bisa Butler’s contemporary quilts, the material of fibers – thread, string, rope, fabrics – compete with traditional materials, such as oil paint or clay, as a more seductive and sensuous material to render bodies. The works presented in this exhibition exercise various techniques and methods to manipulate fibers in creating stunning and rich visual experiences.
- Reception: October 10, 4–6 p.m., Joseloff Gallery
- Artist Talk with Jessica Campbell: October 17, 2:30 p.m., Wilde Auditorium
