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
