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.

Fall Risk is a an exhibition currently on view at Kitchen Table Gallery featuring the work of recent Tyler Glass Alumni Nate Ricciuto ‘15 and Printmaking Alumni Lindsay Deifik ‘15.

Both artists play with the use of optics whether through Deifik’s drawings which transform familiar architectural sites or Ricciutio’s playful kaleidoscope devices. The exhibition will run through April 20. --Kristen Neville Taylor  http://www.kitchentablegallery.com/shows/2016/4/2/nate-ricciuto-lindsay-...       Read More
