Including artwork and ephemera from over 15 artists, activists, and archives nationwide, Loving After Lifetimes of All This is an exhibition exploring the intersections of craft, (self-)care, apprenticeship, and survival within the practices of historically disadvantaged populations. In addition to traditional techniques like weaving, quilting, ceramics, and wood-working, this exhibition considers craft in an expanded sense to include such practices as homeopathy, scrap-booking, gardening, and other DIY strategies for self-reliance. With a focus on intergenerational skill-sharing, this exhibition positions craft-practice as a potential form of cultural resistance.
Featuring: Gina Adams, Tanya Aguiñiga, Natalie M. Ball, Jonathan Barnett, Nedra Bonds, Sonya Clark, Matthew Dehaemers, Josh Faught, Christopher Leitch, Judith G. Levy, Ramekon O’Arwisters, Tina Takemoto, and Temporary Services
