Weaving In & Out was a collaborative exhibition in a new green development in East Harlem called Tapestry. The exhibit took over the raw ground floor space of a residential property called Tapestry located at 245 East 124th St.
In keeping with No Longer Empty's curatorial practice of site specificity, this exhibition explores the interactions between this particular space and its surrounding physical and cultural contexts. "Weaving" appears in the title as a metaphor for the interconnected artistic actions, and the intertwining of people, projects and ideas here.
For this show, I created an organic shape out of pipe cleaners that I began for an exhibit at Bronx Art Space in April 2010. I expanded the piece for this show at Tapestry. With time, this piece will continue to grow.
