LAS Alumni Concentrator, Francesca Capone, Presents “Writing in Threads”

In Writing in Threads Francesca Capone has invited fifteen writers to respond to her woven work.  The weavings will be on exhibition with corresponding writing by Mairéad Byrne, Maria Damon, Ted Dodson, Andrew Durbin, Ben Fama, Ian Hatcher, Lucy Ives, Kevin Killian, Frances Kruk, Mariette Lamson, Sophia Le Fraga, Francesca Lisette, Kristen Mueller, Kit Schluter, and Cole Swensen from May 1st through June 8th, 2015.  Here, writing in threads takes on meaning beyond metaphor.  Weaving is recognized as an alternative analog equivalent to digital writing forms.  Notions of communication that might occur between a stitching circle and a community of writers are collapsed as epistolary relationships are formed that intermingle cloth and word.

The exhibition will run from May 1st through June 8th, 2015, with the official opening being held May 7th from 6pm – 8pm.
