Carla Fernández: The Barefoot Designer: A workshop to Unlearn
March 23–May 15
Level 1 gallery
Coordinated by: Viridiana Zavala, Curatorial Assistant
The Barefoot Designer: A Workshop to Unlearn, a variation on the exhibition originally presented at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 2014, features the work and design philosophy of Carla Fernández, through her exploration of the traditions and techniques from the different indigenous cultures of Mexico. The exhibition contains works inspired in Guerrero, Chiapas, Mexico City, the State of Mexico, Yucatan, and Campeche. Audiences will be introduced to the designer’s techniques as well as to the indigenous communities’ ancestral forms of knowledge through the process-based and workshop components of the exhibition.
Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener will stage a performance in the context of the exhibition. After working together in the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Mitchell and Riener began collaborating in 2009 creating improvisational dances, performances, and immersive experiences.
The work of artists as Graciela Iturbide, Ramiro Chávez and Pedro Reyes is part of the exhibition.
