Adjunct Professor Frances Beaver in SITE Seeing at Little Berlin

Author: tuj81552

SITE Seeing is a show about challenging the constructs of time and space and the potential to create new realities. Shifting possibilities of the real offers political agency and promise of new utopias. It is easy for us to imagine what could go wrong; and to see what has already gone wrong, but while we fight for a better world, it’s important to dream about what could be. The artists in this show slice through the fabric of reality to give us a glimpse of what could be on the other side.

Fibers Grad Student Mollie Caffey in group show at Pilot Projects

Author: tuj81552

First year Fibers Grad Mollie Caffey has work in the show Got It For Cheap at Pilot Projects in Philadelphia. The one-night event will occur on January 26, 2019. Pilot+Projects is pleased to announce Got It For Cheap, a traveling series of group shows organized by LA curators Chirs Rexroad and Charlie Roberts of 0-0 LA. Featuring dozens of local artists and 750+ national/international artists, this sprawling, unwieldy exhibition takes the form of a one night art market where everything is a similar size and same price, presenting the opportunity for anyone to pick up one of a kind artwork by artists both famous and unknown. All works are original works on paper in various media at a maximum size of 8.5 x 11 inches and sold for the low price of $30 USD. The goal of GIFC is to make buying original art accessible to all people and to give young artists a platform to sell their work and be exposed to a worldwide audience.  Read More

Fibers Tech and Printmaking Alumni Amy Cousins solo show at Illinois State University

Author: Kate Garman

You Will Never Have the Comfort of Our Silence Again August 18 – October 8, 2017 Amy Cousins’ large-scale sculptures and installations are based on her research into rare protest ephemera, out-of-print feminist newspapers, and first-person accounts of radical queer histories. From the Lesbian Feminist Declaration of 1976 to the Gay Liberation Dances that emerged across the U.S. in the 1970s, Cousins reimagines these remarkable yet poorly documented events and reveals captivating examples of inventiveness in queer protest. Her sculptural reinterpretations are produced with a range of processes and materials: wall hung appliqué textile figures, text made from shag fabric, a ten-foot-tall papier-mâché puppet, and an off-kilter tufted patent leather vinyl vitrine—complete with kinky lavender fur—to name a few.

Erin M. Riley Alumni in Narrative Horizons at Moore

Author: Kate Garman

September 16 – December 9, 2017 Narrative Horizons presents the work of three women—Kay Healy, Sophia Narrett and Erin M. Riley—whose contemporary studio practices are heavily influenced by traditions steeped in functional craft and the handmade. Presented in conjunction with CraftNOW—a citywide exhibition examining the fluid boundaries that exist around art, design and craft—this show considers how contemporary revivals of sewing, weaving and embroidery reflect the continuing feminist interest in historical technique and play a crucial role in helping these artists understand the past while addressing identity in the present and future. Artist Talk: Thursday, October 19, 6:30 pm.   Read More
