Fabricave at Creativity Explored
September 16 - November 5Free
Discover an enchanted world of fiber artistry in Fabricave, an immersive group exhibition featuring the work of developmentally disabled artists at Creativity Explored in San Francisco.
Featuring 16 neurodiverse and disabled artists the group exhibition of fiber art, fashion and soft sculpture is on view from September 16 through November 5 at the Creativity Explored gallery in the Mission District during select walk-in hours or by appointment.
Imagine a faraway place where the air is warm and fuzzy, stalactites of soft and luscious textures hang above, and the walls come alive with billowing tapestries covered in vibrant patterns. Textured landscapes and curious characters made of yarn, thread, felt, fabrics, and notions depict a colorful and imaginative world made entirely of fiber.
In the studios and from home, CE artists interested in needle crafts have expanded their horizons by experimenting with technique, scale, and materials to consider their practice from the perspective of sculpture. The art and fashions included in the Fabricave exhibition highlight each artist’s individual approach to needlecraft and surface design, while presenting an aesthetic specific to the nearly 40-year-old communal art studio for disabled artists.
Curated by CE teaching artists Alexander Hernandez and Victor Molina
