“Everything Is a Little Fuzzy,” draws from the museum’s permanent collection. With an eye on dimensions of memory and care, it explores the challenges experienced in a post-pandemic world. The exhibition highlights aspects of care, emphasizes memory, communicates resilience, and explores softness through difficult circumstances.
Twenty-two artworks on display feature textile objects or the usage of fibrous materials and techniques. Ninabah Winton, the exhibition’s curator and ASU Art Museum Windgate Assistant Curator of Contemporary Craft and Design, asks, “How are care and memory passed down in textile work? How do fiber or ceramic works hold or contain memories, and how are they shaped by memory or the concept of care?”
Join us at the museum for the opening reception on Saturday, Aug. 19, from 6 to 8 p.m.
