Andy Diaz Hope and Laurel Roth are setting up a research studio in the Artist Studio during the entire month of June. Their project is a triptych of tapestries inspired by the Unicorn Tapestries and structured on the three fundamental conflicts in literature: Allegory of the Monoceros and Allegory of the Infinite Mortal illustrate humans' conflicts with nature and within themselves; the third tapestry, based on humans' conflicts with one another, will be created during their fellowship, pulling from their research into the Museums' collections. The final triptych will be shown at the de Young in March 2013. Hope and Roth's collaborating partner are fine art studio Magnolia Editions, who will produce eight editions of the tapestry, and Bergarde Gallery in Rotterdam.
Join the artists in the studio to contribute your ideas to the tapestry from June 6-July 1, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, 1:00-5:00 p.m. and Fridays 5:00-8:30 p.m.
