Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD says
Gabrielle Duggan is the recipient of a funded Knight Emerging Artist Residency at Ponyride. Come to MOCAD for her free workshop on Tapestry Weaving in Traditional and Unconventional Media Thursday, January 7 at 6:00-8:00 PM.

This workshop is free and open to the public, materials supplied, no previous experience required. There are 30 seats available. First come first serve.

Participants are encouraged to bring objects they are willing to discard for breakdown into the weaving, that include but are not limited to: t-shirts, paper, plastic bags and bottles, wiring, etc.

This residency was made possible by The Applebaum Family Compass Fund, The Knight Foundation, The Empowerment Plan, and Detroit Denim.

Building on and expanding techniques rooted in traditional fiber work, Gabrielle Duggan creates elaborate installations of disparate materials; glass, tar, rocks, wire, yarn, wood, paint, found objects, and textiles. She is drawn to materials of the natural and industrial worlds, and values a connection to animals through researching fiber production (shearing, spinning, and hand constructing cloth). Her installations and performance pieces challenge traditional gender expressions, labor value systems, and address larger social issues through the use of tension, repetition, and by twisting the multiple meanings imbued in the material itself.

Gabrielle Duggan was born in Buffalo, New York and has her Master of Art and Design in Fibers and Surface Design from North Carolina State University.
