Travis Meinolf – WARPUP* – Artist’s talk plus weaving.
Self-proclaimed “action weaver” Travis Meinolf is a public textile artist and teacher from San Fransisco, currently living and working in Berlin. His practice combines art, craft, education and activism, but is based around the production of hand-woven cloth…. Meinolf will talk about his work in relation to contemporary performance art, weaving traditions, non-alienated labour, and gift economics; he will also demonstrate a hand-built loom produced in Oslo, and visitors will have the opportunity to try their hand at weaving. Meinolf says: ‘I am engaged in a personal industrial revolution … to present productive labor as an engaging, satisfying endeavor, whose products could be shared freely within a community to serve the needs of all of its members.’ Travis Meinolf is participating in our current exhibition The Human Pattern, which features the work of Norwegian/Swedish weaver Hannah Ryggen. This event will be in English.
Refreshments will be served.
