"How to Un-Make an American" Quilt Opening
Examining the act of undoing as an ethical choice, this show opens a space for creative political dialog by removing progress and acting in reverse.
With help from community members, Ginsburg and Hargrave will deconstruct an intricate hand-made quilt. Participants will be engaged in conversation and catharsis as the group meticulously removes stitch after stitch. The project will pursue an intimate understanding of one particular skill, looking to the scraps of material as an opening to raw potential.
The show runs from August 1-17 at Roman Susan, located at 1224 W Loyola Ave.
