Seen from a distance, Stitch might be mistaken for an abstract painting exhibition, and in a sense it is. However, the voice of the exhibition focuses on the enunciation of the fibers of a thing instead of the paint. Works in the show utilize sewing, weaving, knitting, hooking, embroidering, and simply exposing the construction of a garment. Stitch features a multinational group of artists who share a love for creating haptic and often austere works that force us to slow down and contemplate.

 

Artists in the exhibition include Simon Fujiwara, Channing Hansen, Alana Iturralde, Oscar Murillo, Paulina Olowska, Frances Trombly, and Brent Wadden, among others.

 

Stitch runs Aug. 22 through Jan. 2. A reception will take place Sept. 7.
