GW Museum & Textile Museum Contemporary Voices: Ai Kijima
February 20, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
This spring, we are teaming up with the Textile Society of America to bring you a series of virtual talks with artists who are breaking ground in textile art. The inaugural season of Contemporary Voices features innovative creators joining us from Brooklyn and Los Angeles — each with a unique practice and perspective.
Ai Kijima is an artist born in Tokyo and currently living in Brooklyn. Her distinctive works are chaotic collages, amalgamations of found material painstakingly stitched into evocative cross-cultural patchworks. In this talk, Kijima will discuss her artistic practice over the last 30 years, as she has developed her expertise in textiles as an immigrant in the United States and as an expat living in Istanbul, Turkey, for more than four years.
