browngrotta arts Spring 2022 Art in the Barn Exhibition: “Crowdsourcing the Collective” — Reserve your visit for May 7th Opening Reception [SPONSORED]
April 29 - May 6
browngrotta arts presents its Spring 2022 Art in the Barn exhibition, Crowdsourcing the Collective: survey of textile and mixed media art this May. Crowdsourcing will be documented in a full-color catalog (our 51st). Join us on Saturday, May 7 for the Opening and Artists Reception or during the rest of the week, May 8-15.
The 42 artists from 12 countries included in Crowdsourcing the Collective: a survey of textile and mixed media art illustrate the vitality of art textiles, ceramics and mixed media. The new prominence of these art forms finds them the subject of exhibitions in major museums, intermixed with paintings and traditional sculpture in ways unthinkable a decade ago. Many of the artists in Crowdsourcing began working in the ‘80s and ’90s, when craft and fiber art were not well recognized; some have been working since fiber art’s first heyday in the ‘60s and ’70s.
The exhibition reflects an astonishing range of materials and techniques, tapestries of silk and agave, sculptures of seaweed, seagrass and willow, wall works made of sandpaper, hemp and horsehair, and ceramics of Shigaraki clay will all be included. The scope of these artists’ preoccupations is on view here, too — from environmental concerns, to questions of the cosmos and identity, to explorations of material and process. It includes new work, works from earlier periods, and work from artists we have invited specifically for this exhibition. In all, 42 artists from 12 different countries are represented.
