VICTORI + MO is excited to present Nasty Stitches, a group exhibition celebrating the political dimensions of fabric and embroidery. On view from June 16–July 23, 2017, Nasty Stitches presents artwork by Caroline Wells Chandler, Elsa Hansen, Katrina Majkut, and Sara Sachs. Taking as its point of departure the historical relegation of fabric and embroidery work to the status of “craft,” Nasty Stitches elevates these practices as powerful mediums for creative expression and empowerment. Each of the artists use their work within these mediums to address a myriad of political issues related to gender. Weaving together these four artists’ differing approaches to fabric and embroidery, the exhibition presents a unique view of how these mediums have been reclaimed both aesthetically and politically. Framed within the larger context of contemporary American politics, where non-conforming bodies, reproductive rights, and sexual health are under attack, the works presented in the exhibition are all the more powerful.
