Happy Fall! As the end of the year approaches, there are multiple ways to see my work on exhibit:
'Let's Play War!'
an installation by Nathan Vincent
Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue, WA through October 18th
Emmanuel Fremin Gallery in NYC, opening November 5th - December 31st
There are still a few days left to view my crocheted installation on the west coast. Once it closes in Bellevue, the armies make their way back to NYC to show at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery. If you're out east, save the date as I'd love to see you there if possible!
'Don't Make Me count to three!'
San Diego Art Institute in San Diego, CA
October 2nd - November 15th
The crocheted dynamite of 'Don't Make Me count to three!' will be on display in San Diego as a part of the group show "Women's Work: Masculinity and Gender in Contemporary Fiber Art"
From the press release:
â€œWomenâ€™s Workâ€ is an international exhibitionâ€”curated by SDAIâ€™s Executive Director Ginger Shulick Porcellaâ€”that calls for a reexamination of traditional gender stereotypes. The show includes powerful images evoking and informing psychological experiences of both the artists and viewers. The artists included in this program employ a variety of techniques regarded as traditional and domestic, such as embroidery and crochet, using craft materials to address cultural and gender issues in a complex intersection of artistic practices, popular culture, and aesthetic splendor. The exhibition includes artists using unexpected materialsâ€”such as discarded clothing, pipe cleaners, and even human skinâ€”to show the range of fiber materials incorporated into contemporary craft.
Participating artists include: Blanka Amezkua, Caroline Wells Chandler, Sheena Rae Dowling, Robert Dupree, Rose Eken, Ashley Gibbons, James Gilbert, Kris Grey, Paddy Hartley, China Lamadein, Don Porcella, Jacob Rhodes, Katia Sepulveda, Katya Usvitsky, Nathan Vincent, and David Willburn.
MICA, Fox Building: Decker Gallery
1301 W. Mount Royal Ave. Baltimore, MD 21217
December 11th - March 13th
The 'Locker Room' will be on tour with "Queer Threads: Crafting Identity & Community", curated by John Chaich. I'm excited that I'll be able to go up and install the work as well as participate in a little artist talk/tour of the show.
And if you can't make it to Baltimore, the tour continues to Boston- more on that soon!
Body Builder doilies and a new installation
Sun Valley Center for the Arts in Sun Valley, ID
December 11th 2015 - Feb 20th 2016
The body builders doilies are making their way to an exhibition called "Role Play: Changing Ideas about Gender" at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. In addition I'll be debuting a new installation that I can't wait to share with you all. I won't be able to make the reception for this exhibition, but it is free and open to the public.
From the press release:
The way we understand gender is shiftingâ€”moving away from strict categories of male and female toward looser definitions that give us all more freedom. At the same time, traditional expectations of male and female gender roles remain entrenched in our culture in sometimes surprising ways. This exhibition considers and challenges gender stereotypes through a wide variety of artwork, from photographs of a camp for gender-creative children to an installation of knitted and crocheted urinals.
Role Play: Changing Ideas about Gender exhibition on view Dec 11, 2015â€“Feb 20, 2016 at The Center, Ketchum.
Have a fantastic day and thanks for reading,
