Threading the City’s Virtual Panel Discussion
November 17 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Aluna Art Foundation is hosting a virtual discussion to examine some of themes of the new exhibition “Subverting Materials: Textile and Fiber Art by Women Artists.” The virtual panel discussion features art historian and Pre-Columbian Art experts Carol Damien, Ph.D., and Shelley Burian, Ph.D., moderated by Adriana Herrera, Ph.D. The discussion will explore the relationship between pre-Hispanic textiles and modern fiber art and examine the living presence of indigenous textile legacy not only in contemporary artists who are direct descendants of native peoples but also in other Latin American artists, including some Miami artists who work with fiber.
Registration is not required. The exhibition and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Aluna Art Foundation.
