"Women’S Work: Masculinity And Gender In Contemporary Fiber Art" Opening Reception says
“Women’s Work” is an international exhibition curated by SDAI’s Executive Director Ginger Shulick Porcella calling 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 materials—such as discarded clothing, pipe cleaners, and even human skin—to show the range of fiber-based materials incorporated into contemporary craft. Concepts discussed in the exhibition include gender fluidity, rock 'n' roll culture, and codes of violence and war.

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.

The opening reception takes place at San Diego Art Institute, 1439 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101 from 6pm-8pm on Friday, October 2. The exhibition will run until November 15. The exhibition is sponsored by ISE Cultural Foundation and the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture
