KNITTING NATION Phase 12: H2O
Textile artist and fashion designer Liz Collins and her troupe of artisan-knitters will transform the steps between Johnson and Fowler halls at the heart of the Occidental campus into KNITTING NATION Phase 12: H2O, a day-long, site-specific, carefully choreographed performance involving literally miles of yarn.
- Location: In Front of the AGC
- Time: 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
- Sponsor: Art and Art History
KNITTING NATION, which began with a 2005 performance on Governors Island in New York, “functions as a commentary on how humans interact with machines, global manufacturing, trade and labor, brand iconography, and fashion,” states Collins’ artist’s statement.
