The Hokin Project - Interlacing Threads: Traditional Techniques | Contemporary Persepectives

January 27, 2014 - March 7, 2014 Exhibition Reception: February 13, 2014 5:30-8:30PM Recent Exhibition: Interlacing Threads: Traditional Techniques | Contemporary Perspectives The Hokin Project Columbia College Chicago 623 S. Wabash Ave., 1st Floor Chicago, IL 60605 The art of weaving, hand-sewing and similar techniques transcends generations and cultures alike. These ancestral arts help sustain a connection to cultural identities and histories that in recent time have acquired new interpretations in the hands of contemporary practitioners. Interlacing Threads presents the work of seven artists, who informed by their cultural background and present day lives, incorporate traditional techniques in their creative process to shed light on social and political concerns. Ultimately, their work forges a greater understanding of the similiar underpinnings of seemingly disarate cultures. Featured Artists: Ani Afshar, Natalia Anciso, Jerry Bleem, Annet Couqenberg, Consuelo Jimenz Underwood, Laura Kina, and Victoria Martinez Curated by Marcela Andrade
