Among the Garbage and the Flowers


Eleven artists, curated by Susan Avishai, demonstrate how they reimagine and redefine cast-off textiles and old clothing. Through artistic reuse, they tangibly demonstrate the dignity of labour, the respect for materials, and perhaps an even greater understanding of the creative process itself.

Reception: August 5, 2023 from 2 - 4pm
