108|Contemporary is excited to announce its upcoming exhibition Variations on the Theme of Loss: Emily Chase & Tali Weinberg. This exhibition brings together two Tulsa Artist Fellows who use fiber processes to explore complex and varied experiences of loss, from the most deeply personal to the social and global.
Emily Chase uses paper as a medium to create sculptural objects. Her intricate paper garments explore ideas about the growth and disintegration of memory and identity, creating narratives both fantastical and grounded in truth.
Tali Weinberg takes on loss at a global level, grappling with our material and affective experiences of climate change. Her weaving draws on the intimacy, sociality and science of textiles, to reveal interconnections— between multiple forms of knowledge and between corporeal and ecological bodies.
108|Contemporary will host Chase and Weinberg for artist talks guiding audiences through their work and practice. Chase’s artist talk will be on Saturday, April 7th from 1:30-3:00, with Weinberg concluding the series on Saturday, April 21st from 1:30-3:00. Together, these artists create a dialogue that intertwines individual and the collective experiences in a way that is thoughtful, intriguing, humanizing, and powerful. Variations on the Theme of Loss is an exhibition that cannot be missed, and surely will not be forgotten.
108|Contemporary is a non-profit community arts organization that supports Oklahoma’s contemporary fine craft artists.
