Mourning Global Warming: FREE Embroidering Workshop

Mourning Global Warming: Embroidering Workshop
Sunday, April 28, 2-4PM
In conjunction with our ‘2 DEGREES‘ group exhibition on climate change, featured artist, Sarita Zaleha, has volunteered to lead a free embroidery workshop here at Avenue 50 Studio! Please RSVP via e-mail at email@example.com.
You are invited to stitch storm names as part of Mourning Global Warming, an ongoing traveling project by Sarita Zaleha. Participants embroider names of hurricanes and typhoons, and this collective labor becomes visible through variations in each participant’s stitching. The crafting practices of quilting and embroidering are inflected with traditions of mourning, though we usually associate grieving and mourning with the loss of individuals and human death. With this project, these mourning practices attend to the ecological damages that have occurred and continue to occur, bringing our focused attention to this loss. Once embroideries are complete, they are sewn into patchwork flags (on view in the 2 Degrees exhibition at Avenue 50 Studio) and used at climate change events and demonstrations. Please RSVP via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
