CONDUITION: A Conversation Between Liz Collins, Elissa Auther and Li Edelkoort
LMAKgallery is thrilled to invite you to a conversation between Liz Collins and Elissa Auther (author and curator at MAD, Museum for Arts & Design) as part of the exhibition Conduition and the New York Textile Month. In her work, Collins incorporates a variety of textiles, vivid colors, dynamic patterns, and inventive shapes and structures, blurring the lines between art and design. Known for her ongoing expertise in this undefined area, Auther focuses on the wide range of the use and understanding of textile, art and design, connecting them through her extensive writing and curatorial practice. In this conversation Collins and Auther will talk about Collins' work in relation to the infinite identities of textile, and the relationship of her work to other artists, to the history of textile, and other ideas.
