Unraveled: Textiles Reconsidered at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati | Marie Watt Studio
We’re in Cincinnati this week, and tonight is the opening of Unraveled: Textiles Reconsidered, a group show exploring the deconstruction and reconstruction of everyday textiles, curated by Kate Bonansinga, formerly of Portland and now director of the School of Art at the University of Cincinnati. For the exhibit, the studio made Blanket Stories: Beacon, Marker, Ohi-yo, a blanket column inspired by the marker trees to be found in woodlands areas in the midwest. Anthropologists believe that these trees were “trained” by Indigenous peoples to provide navigation information along foot trails.
