Lazy Stitch

LAZY STITCH | May 4 - July 21, 2018

Cannupa Hanska Luger, Frey A. Marie, Chip Thomas, Jesse Hazelip, and Kali Spitzer

OPENING RECEPTION + ARTIST TALKS | Friday, May 4, 5-9p @Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery of Contemporary Art in the Ent Center for the Arts

Organized by artist Cannupa Hanska Luger, Lazy Stitch will interpret the concept of the bead as connection point for human beings across land, race, culture, gender and time. Four contemporary artists from diverse backgrounds working in collaboration with Hanska Luger will investigate the notion of the bead as object. Through multiple installations the artists will engage the idea that there is a hole in all of us and what we consume and what we waste is the thread that connects us all. As Hanska Luger states, "We are all beads, threaded together in a larger work; diverse individually yet together we create a larger social structure dependent on one another and the land for survival."
