This event has ended.

The seven artists in Rewoven Part III at El Museo de Los Sures all live and work in New York City. These artists personally watch and experience the direct impact of the political chaos emanating from the authority center; the White House desk has been switched to a golf course. Curator Luchia Meihua Lee said “artists regenerate a parameter of relationship between individual and society, symbolically exposing endless exhausted whirlpools with revels into sarcastic dialogue.” In Rewoven, powerful questions adumbrate crisis; these views expand connectivity and reach globally.

In ChinChih Yang’s Mathematics of Light, he reflects as curator Lee puts it, on “the current sickness of society” by depicting a chaos of desire, confusion, pollution, and cupidity in the small video under a thicket of shiny metallic ribbons cut from discarded beverage cans.
Steven Balogh escaped from communist territory only to find himself behind the barbed wire-topped walls of a concentration camp, and now resides in New York. His piece Peacock in trap reflecting on the political scene, is especially relevant today with a golf aficionado in the White House. Money Windfall with its green hurricanes perhaps refers to the obscene profits on Wall Street that result from mindless paper chases.

The womb-like chain chair made by Catherine Lan is an exotic shelter from the storm; artificial fur covers this chair which is equipped with flashing neon lights and with the sounds of a baby. This fake shelter has been placed in the front porch of the Museo de Los Sures gallery space, in contrast with a background of old peering paint mural of two Los Sures heroes. Williamsburg, like many artist areas, has become attractive to developers, and Los Sures has been fighting the unwanted effects of gentrification there. Mingjer Kuo’s Suburban Form reviews the over developed land transformed into beautiful shining plastic chips, and originates with an aerial view of the repeating shape of suburban housing.

A symbolic mapping of urban public transportation is shown in Atlas by Poyen Wang, where he makes unnatural abstract landscape from subway advertisements.

Lulu Meng’s Model discusses the relationship of self to society. Her other wall installation is an artist diary which directly illustrates life as an artist in NYC, fighting for survival and to express her dream. Taking matters to a global level, Hiroshi Jashiki powerfully suggests a melting iceberg indicative of a dangerous water crisis facing NYC and the world.

New York artists for Rewoven- part III were selected by curator Luchia Meihua Lee. Their works naturally formulate laws to redefine and reshape fiber art ideas, practice, and content.
