Teresa Margolles: We Have a Common Thread

January 19 through April 22, 2017
For this exhibition, Teresa Margolles gave artist-embroiderers access to fabric that had "been marked through contact with the body of a woman, or in some cases a man, who had suffered a violent death." The embroiderers then created patterns on the fabric to "trigger a conversation about the violence and social problems plaguing their respective communities."

A group exhibition featuring works by Haydee Alonso, Laura Bombach, Nikki Diaz, Cynthia Evans, Nabil Gonzalez, Mia Moreno and Jane Terrazas. All of the artists in the show create works that draw from memory and contemporary craft traditions in an attempt to ask questions.
