This event has ended.

REWOVEN: Innovative Fiber Art is an international collaboration between the Taiwanese American Arts Council, New York; the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan; Queensborough Community College Art Gallery, CUNY; and the Godwin-Ternbach Museum at Queens College, CUNY; and Museo de los Sures.

The Godwin-Ternbach Museum is exhibiting work by ten Taiwanese artists: Chen Ching-Lin, Hsu Wei-Hui, Huang Mei-Hui, Teresa Huang, Huang Wen-Ying, Pan Ping-Yu, Wu Pei-Shan, Wu Yun-Feng, Yang Wei-Lin, and Wen-Fu Yu.

Much of this colorful and vivid work is dedicated to feminism, and all of it incorporates weaving in various materials and forms. In a series piece, 99 stocking pumpkins take assorted organic and exotic shapes. Masterful flower pieces have been fashioned from beauty masks. The art here shows an indirect, undercover, and unsettling beauty.

The artwork was chosen by the curatorial team of Fangling Tseng (Kaohsiung Museum), Luchia Meihua Lee (Taiwanese American Arts Council), Faustino Quintanilla (QCC Art Gallery), and Amy Winter (GTM, Queens College).

This collaborative project will be on display at three sites: the Godwin-Ternbach Museum; the Queensborough Community College Art Gallery in Queens; and El Museo de Los Sures in Brooklyn, with a total of 24 Taiwanese and New York-based artists.
