On June 15, 2021, Shoshana Wayne Gallery debuts “Above & Below,” an exhibition of work by 12 artists working with fabric, cloth, beads and woven materials. The exhibition opens by appointment to visitors June 15, and runs through August 28, 2021.
The exhibition title refers to the process of weaving—threading above and below lines of thread to create a fabric. Though the use of weaving and woven materials is what unites each of these artists, they employ a diverse range of artistic processes and practices from weaving, quilting, sewing, needlepoint and felting to assemblage and threading.
Shoshana Wayne Gallery has a long history of showing artists using woven practices. Most artists in the show previously have exhibited or continue to exhibit with the gallery: these artists are Gil Yefman, Dinh Q. Lê, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Elaine Reichek, Frances Trombly, Anina Major, Jeffrey Gibson, Terri Friedman, and James Richards. In addition, Madame Moreau, Max Colby, and Yveline Tropéa are all showing their work in our Los Angeles gallery for the first time.
