Women Pulling at The Threads of Social Discourse: A Room of One's Own
A Room of One's Own @ the CAMP Gallery, North Miami
The fourth annual edition of the show Women Pulling at The Threads of Social Discourse explores the gritty, and uncomfortable parts of life through what is often, improperly, considered the tamest realm of fine art: fiber.
The first collaboration between CAMP and FAMA in 2020 aimed to democratize artistic expression, exhibiting works from over one hundred artists exploring urban and technological woes, proudly baring the intricacies of their identities for the centennial of the 19th Amendment of the US Constitution, and in 2021 creating individual squares for a quilt symbolizing their dedication to community, especially in times of turmoil. The concept for 2022’s edition begins with a look back to Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, written in a time when women were barred from exercising their innate freedom. “There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” This exhibition, A Room of Our Own, transforms The CAMP Gallery’s North Miami space into a room made entirely of fiber, becoming the embodiment of personal freedom. We are asking those who submit to create textile works in the form of objects found in a room—decorative, furniture, lighting, and the like —all of which will be on display for the months of October through December 2022. A Room of Our Own is an exploration of how safe spaces are rooms of empowerment, the relationships we build with our personal items, and how identities and environments mutually influence one another.
The Contemporary Art Modern Project (CAMP). A Room of One's Own will transform the CAMP gallery space into an immersive environment entirely made of fiber.
