Throwback Thursday Movie: Holes (2003)

“If only, If only, the woodpecker sighs. The bark on the tree was as soft as the skies. While the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely, he cries to the moon if only, if only.

curated by Toby Clarke and Kathy Grayson, the exhibit takes its title from the weaving terms “warp” (the vertical and static component of the weave) and “woof” (the dynamic and horizontal aspect of the weave), this exhibition looks at textile-driven abstraction across continents in emerging art. Ayan Farah, Kadar Brock, and Graham Wilson all create process-driven abstraction that includes serendipitous destruction and creation operating within the systems they have created. Evan Robarts, Hank Willis Thomas, Shinique Smith and Alek O. include found materials into their conceptual framework in a web of memory, history and cultural forces. Nika Neelova, Penny Lamb and Moffat Takadiwa use architectural ghosts to weave new artworks.
