15th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition – From Chaos to Beloved Community: Envisioning Social Justice
This annual juried exhibition features works in fiber created by African American artists from throughout the United States. The challenge for this 15th annual exhibit was for artists to create works that show what an inclusive future looks like. Artists were asked to envision a society free from the bondage of oppression—both physical and social. True Social Justice imagines a future void of racist and bigoted thought and the structures that violently oppress minorities and marginalized communities. Fiber pieces featured in the show visualize a future where better conditions exist for all generations of people through the use of technology, art, music, and literature. Curated by award-winning and nationally exhibiting textile artist, Torreah “Cookie” Washington.
