How have textiles influenced the development of technology? How do weaving, sewing, and knitting inform how we make camera and phone images? What can the history of textile arts, which spans the length of human history, teach emerging media practices?
For two days, Squeaky Wheel will host artists and scholars from across the country for a convening exploring the secret and not-so-secret history connecting textile arts and media arts. This convening will function as research that will inform an ambitious, multi-site exhibition that will open in late 2019. Speakers for the symposium include Terri Francis, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Stephen Monteiro, and Betty Yu.
Seating is limited and RSVP is required. Breakfast snacks and a late lunch will be provided to all participants on Saturday, November 17. Please go to squeaky.org/punctures to confirm your attendance.
