Angie Wilson mines seismic cultural shifts and the subtleties of consciousness in her textile-based sculpture and installations. She will be discussing current and recent projects including Protest Curtains, collaborative projects resisting racism, xenophobia and inequality, as well as her woven meditations on space and time.
No sewing skills needed! Used garments will be redesigned and reconstructed into fashion masterpieces: shirts, pants, jackets, dresses, bags, etc. Students will have the option to showcase their garments in a student-led fashion show in March!
