Textile Art: Spinning the Political with Ancestral Practices
December 3rd, 2022 at 5pm The Hangar, 3385 Pan American Drive, Coconut Grove, Miami FL 33133
Politically-charged fiber arts in America and its relations with ancestral traditions.
This PINTA TALK featuring fiber artist Pip Brant, Aurora Molina and Evelyn Politzer is moderated by Adriana Herrera PhD, cofounder of Aluna Art Foundation. They will discuss politically-charged fiber arts and ways of exploring the relationship between gender, history, and fiber ancestral traditions and its connection with contemporary textile art. The talk has been organized in partnership with Threading the City, a fusion of the Fiber Artist Miami Association (FAMA), the World Textile Art (WTA), local art curators, and art historians. FAMA Fiber Artists have been using textiles for confronting subjects that include migration, and other political topics.
