Lisa Kokin makes art with recycled materials that she finds at flea markets, thrift stores, and recycling centers. She has worked with books, buttons, gut, photographs, thread, zippers and most recently with shredded money. Kokin’s work is often a critique of the socio-political status quo imbued with a healthy dose of levity and a keen sensitivity to materials and processes.

Textile Arts Council Lecture: "Hmong Story Cloths: A Historical and Cultural Understanding"

Dr. Linda Gerdner
April 22, 2017 -
10:00am12:00pm

Story cloths originated during a pivotal time in the history of a specific cohort of Hmong people from Laos. During confinement in refugee camps in Thailand, Hmong women applied their superior needlework skills to create a new art form. These embroidered story cloths visually convey lived experiences and cultural heritage. Following the closure of the last refugee settlement, story cloths have become a dying art. Dr. Linda Gerdner has been collecting story cloths for over two decades, with a discerning eye for quality of stitches and diversity of content.

Docent Lecture: "Frank Stella: A Retrospective", by Gretchen Turner

February 26, 2017 -
12:30pm1:30pm

Frank Stella burst onto the art scene in 1959 at the age of 23, with his series of black paintings. Over the years, his abstract compositions became increasingly complex and dynamic, moving out from the walls into the third dimension, expanding the very definition of painting. The de Young is the only West Coast venue for this retrospective covering six decades of Stella’s work, including paintings, wall mounted reliefs, and sculptures.
