Fuzzy Daydream: Boredom, Fashion, Death and Time

January 14 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until January 21, 2022

Fuzzy Daydream features new work from artists Lydia Diemer, Betsy Hunt, and Lindsey Schmitt that engages with fabric and how what we wear interacts with the human and non-human contexts that surround us.

 

The artists write: “Clothes frame moments when aspects of the private go public, challenging cultural norms, creating space for contemplation, or staking a claim to joy. [We] examine the intertwining of aesthetic and socio-political histories and futures, informed by the agency of outfits and fabrics, facets of concealment and disclosure, impulsive actions and the reflexivity of trends.”

 

The work in Fuzzy Daydream includes print, installation, and video by the three artists, who have been working collaboratively on this project for the past year. 

 

The exhibition will include two events:

• a virtual conversation with the three artists on Monday January 3 at 6pm [information and registration here]

• an in-person closing reception at 229 N. Gilbert, on Friday January 21 from 5-7pm 

 

It also includes a zine, Fuzzy, and an interactive website, fuzzydaydream.com. The zine highlights the process of each artist and their long-term conversation on fabric and use-value, labor, the residue of domesticity, and gendered associations.

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
