Johansson Projects is pleased to announce an in-person conversation and walk through with Miguel Arzabe and Jill d’Alessandro, Curator in Charge of Textile Arts at the de Young Museum.
Miguel Arzabe’s solo exhibition entitled Cóndor de Cuatro Cabezas (Four-Headed Condor) is on view to the public through July 24. No appointments needed during gallery hours, Thursday – Saturday, 1-5PM.
Miguel is joined by Jill D’Alessandro, the curator in charge of textile arts at The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Since 2002, D’Alessandro has developed numerous exhibitions on a diverse variety of subjects, ranging from world textile traditions to twentieth-century fashion design. As curator, the Fine Arts Museums collections have greatly informed D’Alessandro’s worldview and she is interested in the study of textile arts as a vehicle to draw connections across cultures.
“…Arzabe’s energetic patterns and meticulous crafting present a formally strong show where the artist’s process of making, unmaking, and reassembly speaks to the hybridity and nonlinearity of traditions, narratives, and place. Moreover, Arzabe’s show demonstrates the artist’s keen ability to push viewers back to take in the whole while also pulling them into to inspect the details, where from both perspectives the view is entrancing….” – Genevieve Quick for 48 Hills Review: Miguel Arzabe’s ingenious hybridizations summon mythic forces
