About the show:
Curated by Abdi Farah, Laura Gipson, and Natalie McLaurin, Cinch is the fifth exhibition presented by Antenna Gallery that gathers together artists whose artistic practices have connections to fiber. The exhibition explores the multifaceted meaning of “cinch,” featuring artists fastening, fixing, attaching, pinning, sewing, stitching, binding, and making sure.
“CLOTH IS THE BODY’S FIRST ARCHITECTURE; IT PROTECTS, CONCEALS, AND REVEALS; IT CARRIES OUR WEIGHT, SWADDLES US AT BIRTH AND COVERS US IN SLEEP AND IN DEATH.”
Featuring work by Teresa Cole, Abdi Farah, Laura Gipson, Susan Gisleson, Louise Mouton-Johnson, Baxter Koziol, Cora Lautze, Destiny Palmer, Jagdeep Raina, Bobby Smith, and Jacqueline Surdell.
