Assemblages: fiber, thread, and found objects

Curated by John Paradiso and Imani W. Russell

Assemblages: fiber, thread, and found objects is an exhibition of mixed media and found objects. With the exception of two sculptural houses by IBe’ Crowley, all the works in the show use textiles and found objects.

Co-curated by fiber artist Imani Russell, this exhibition highlights a group of mature artists from Harlem and Washington DC.

“Through mixed media, the artists in this exhibition articulate stories of the past and present by using discarded materials, needle work and diverse fibers.” Imani Russell
