Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
On Friday, October 9, at 7 pm EST/4 pm Pacific, the Surface Design Association in partnership with the National Museum of Women in the Arts, is presenting Holding Space: Bridging Fiber Art & Racial Identity, an online panel that features three women artists who use textiles and fiber to construct and explore ideas around racial identity. The panel, comprised of moderator Karen Barker and panelists SHENEQUA, Fabiola Jean-Louis, and Suchritra Mattai, will explore themes like tradition, adornment, and labor that are interwoven in each artists’ work. Holding Space celebrates, educates and encourages conversation with the intent of building a healthy, active, and diverse fiber community to drive change.
