Queerness weaves the threads of our physical, social and moral existence together into a multi-dimensional fabric of community and our selves.
As queer artists we continue to create complex identities and imagine new modes of address through a myriad of queer tactics, textures and sensibilities.
What are the threads that bind, mend and sometimes unravel this spectacular fabric of queer art? How does this queerness operate? How does it present itself? How do we fashion, perform, subvert or display queerness in our art and lives?
We hope to explore these themes in art in all mediums that incorporate (in the broadest sense of these ideas): sewing, knitting, weaving, braiding, binding, knotting, textiles, quilting, patchwork, costuming, fashion and fashion events, drag, second skins, performance art, woven texts, blogs, digital networks and communities.
THREADS curatorial committee includes: Tirza Latimer, Rudy Lemcke, Matt McKinley, Pamela Peniston, Allison Smith, and Tina Takemoto.
