Closing Party for PHASES, featuring Fibers Faculty Crystal Gregory
Please join us for the closing party of the collaborative project PHASES by Alexa Williams and Crystal Gregory. During their three-week residency in the gallery the artists installed and wove on a site-specific floor-to-ceiling loom, removed the textile and cast it into concrete wall pieces.
Through their collaboration the artist have highlighted the contradictions between strength and vulnerabilty inside the deconstruction of systems and the resulting eloquence in their reconfiguration. The work reflects a discovery of tensions between industrial materials and the pliable yet structural patterns found in cloth, inverting embedded stereotypes and allowing a reinterpretation of material identities.
