working in pairs (or the fabricate show at freedom clothing collective).

fabricate closing (2)b

this evening, i managed to stop by freedom clothing collective to catch the closing reception for fabricate, a show co-presented by freedom and meredith keith gallery. conceived from the current overlap of art, craft and design, the show paired makers of different disciplines into collaborations. since most of the programming was at the other gallery, i only got to see the collaboration between lizz aston and jen kneulman (the ghostly and structured woven pieces pictured throughout). i wish i had time to see the whole show. this particular discussion is a very interesting one to me at the moment. plus, the images i saw online of the other pieces communicated some great skill and curation. freedom's head curator, marsya maharani, wrote an interesting note about the origins of the show and how it fits into the overall complexity of the freedom project and contemporary art/craft/design interplay here. full show write-up is here. great work, everyone! man, it is nice to be back home.

Thanks for coming, Becky!!

If you missed the rest of the show, one of the pieces is now in our window. It's a wooden mannequin with cubes exploding from its inside and onto the hooded Italian linen dress that its wearing... This piece is by Amanda Schoppel (visual artist) and Caterina Mazzotta (fashion designer).
