Reception for "Cultural Fabric", by November Artist-in-Residence Miguel Arzabe

Miguel Arzabe, Tall Weaving (detail), 2016
November 25, 2016 -

Miguel Arzabe shows a new series of large-scale weavings made from paper ephemera—posters, flyers, hand-outs—collected from art exhibitions. Drawing inspiration from both the traditions of indigenous textiles and modernist abstract painting, Arzabe's weavings are physical archives of cultural output and raise questions of authorship, labor, and how value is created.
