Saturday Seminar with Studio Views Artist Sarah Zapata
Join Studio Views artist-in-residence Sarah Zapata for an afternoon of hands-on activities and conversation exploring the themes, materials, and techniques that inform the artist’s current projects. At MAD, Zapata is completing a new installation that examines the transformative power of cloth created by women for male-dominated spaces. She is using fiber and cloth to create a range of surfaces that are sewn, handwoven, and tufted. Inspired by the gendered nature of ceremonial textiles, this work balances a conversation between traditional Western altars and ancient religious spaces, specifically the ceremonial center of Nazca culture, Cahuachi.
