World of Threads Festival, 2016


Opening reception: October 30, 2016, 1:00 - 3:00pm

The works in me and you were selected from submissions by artists to the 2016 International World of Threads Festival. The 21 artists use traditional and modern techniques to address contemporary concerns and issues. Some works draw upon personal narratives as they pertain to the self (me) - body, image and identity - while other reflect on issues related to the other (you) - concerning experience, relationships and social-political circumstance.
