Weaving Matters: Artist Susie Taylor with Curator Zoë Latzer

August 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us at ICA San José Thursday, August 3, at 6pm for Weaving Matters, a conversation between Artist, Susie Taylor, and ICA’s Associate Curator and Director of Public Programs, Zoë Latzer. Susie Taylor is one of the artists featured in Altered Perception, a group show at ICA San José inspired by British artist, Bridget Riley

Susie Taylor’s loom-based works are stunning color ruminations on the history of tapestries, process, and decoration; informed by weavers of the Bauhaus such as Albers and Albers, Margarete Köhler, Marli Ehrman, and Gunta Stölzl and following in the footsteps of other important weavers whose work transcends traditional presentations, such as Lia Cook, Olga de Amaral, and Sheila Hicks. Yet, Taylor not only builds on those who have come before her, but invents weaving techniques never seen before. Taylor’s works in this instance serve as major statements about abstraction, color, and composition, with bold color blocks and soft transitions that speak to the very nature of perception, let alone the history of weaving and technology.
