Description

Tufting Gun Tapestries
Assemble in collaboration with Duval Timothy, Big Chief Demond Melancon and the Material Institute, New Orleans
September 13—October 27, 2019
Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 17, 6-8pm | Logan Center Gallery

Tufting Gun Tapestries presents textile experiments produced by the architecture collective Assemble in collaboration with students from the Material Institute in New Orleans and other textile practitioners. Exploring alternative education and spatial practices, this project will transform the Logan Center Gallery into an active site of learning through an investigation of fabric arts, and will consider its spatial and social potential. Also on view are photographs, texts, and ephemera that contextualize Assemble Studio’s approach to interdisciplinary work through past projects.

Tufting Gun Tapestries is presented by Logan Center Exhibitions and curated by Yesomi Umolu, Director & Curator with Katja Rivera, Assistant Curator and Alyssa Brubaker, Exhibitions Manager. This exhibition is made possible by support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, UChicago Urban Architecture Initiative, The Reva and David Logan Foundation, and friends of the Logan Center, and is co-funded by MONA (Museum of Old and New Art).
