Fiber Arts Month - Sustainability, Culture, and Community Dialogue with Featured Student Artists
Textile and fiber arts students from Pomona College exhibit and lead spotlight discussions on sustainability, culture, and community.
Student artist bios:
- Austin Kim is a multimedia artist focused on video essay, fibers, and textiles. Through his work, he aims to address questions of rituality, nostalgia, and memory as it relates to his childhood experiences.
- Fio Guy is currently based in LA, and studies studio art and pure mathematics at Pomona College. Her work includes fiber sculpture, painting, and video, exploring themes of the anthropocene, the sexual, and the spiritual.
- Kali Tindell-Griffin is a textile and printmaking student exploring topics of memory, resilience, and community through historic fiber art methods in a contemporary context.
- Mei Ge takes inspiration from the imagery of her dreams, with her creative practices searching to complicate daily ritual by unraveling the tensions between memory, illusion, and escape.
This event is part of Fiber Arts Month, three consecutive Saturdays in May of demonstrations, artist presentations, and drop-in maker's events.
