The artists in Rewoven share a common interest in imaginative world-making. Coming from a range of backgrounds, they defy the artificially composed confines of space and identity. Their works envision a courageous future; through acts of refusal, community engagement, and thoughtful critique, they are each example of homemaking.
Using the body as a unifying point of departure, the artists query corporeal perceptions, manipulations, and interactions to infer alternative ways of relating to and with one another. The pieces weave an eclectic geography that draws from the artists’ upbringing, responding to experiences of (dis)placement and othering. Each artist is occupied with confronting the heinous facts of globalization, colonization, and bigotry, while celebrating the many moments of delight and endurance that, when woven together, can create the size of the cloth.
