This exhibition is closed for the remainder of the Spring semester due to COVID-19. For more information, please click here. This exhibition of Zipporah Camille Thompson’s work explores how the artist utilizes the construction inherent in weaving to paradoxically engage ideas of destruction and chaos. The tangible references to disorder and confusion represented in the choice of objects included in her work stand in contrast to the woven structure, thus echoing the cyclical processes of life. Within this focus, Thompson reveals and reconciles the deterioration of the environment, tumultuous personal histories, and the complexity of her own identity as fodder for creation. The gathering of nature’s debris, manmade materials, and manufactured objects is a practiced ritual used to anchor the artist in the present by evoking the surety of the past. Collected materials, ascribed with various meaning and memories, were once a source of solace that she often complicates at the site of the loom. By introducing disparate textures, clashing colors, and hybrid spiritual practices she creates a visual disharmony that is used to reproduce the tensions of the ever-present chaos. This exhibition will show how the artist creates fantastical fiber abstractions that embody the chaotic realities of the present and its transformation into a foreign future.

The museum will be closed when the campus is closed.
