Description

Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community

Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community takes you places that you and your sewing never thought to go.”
—Holland Cotter, The New York Times

Boston Center for the Arts presents Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community, featuring 26 artists from four continents who remix fiber and textile craft traditions and materials to explore contemporary lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer identities and ideas. On view April 29 through July 10.

Queer Threads is brought to you in partnership with the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. For more information on Queer Threads click here.

“The artists in Queer Threads…mobilize craft and its techniques in an eclectic and campy disruption of identity categories and to imagine collective modes of gender and sexual self-determination.”
—Jeanne Vaccaro, Journal of Modern Craft
