Lecture & Reception: Christy Matson

January 24 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EST

Free

Christy Matson is a Los Angeles-based artist known for her painterly approach to textiles. Matson employs a hand-operated, computer-programmable Jacquard loom to create intricate weavings to which she often applies paint and other fiber techniques. The artist mines her deep interests in approaches such as collage and abstraction, which can be found in both historical as well as modernist textile traditions. Matson’s work reflects on the gendered histories of weaving in conjunction with art historical approaches such as geometric abstraction and collage.

Her current exhibition at Cranbrook Art Museum, Crossings, features 16 weavings configured into 2 monumentally scaled tapestries that were originally conceived for a special commission for the US Embassy in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

Lecture is free and open to the public. Cash bar and reception to follow the talk.
