WHAT’S HAPPENING:
“A social history of cloth and its everyday use is marked by the stains and sweat of working life–impregnated with the odors of labour; betrayed by the traces of gender, class, and race.”–Janis Jefferies, Labored Cloth


Under Primping is a performative/installation, it lives as a relic/site when not activated. The activation/performance consists of people working/laboring over a petticoat sculpture while being read to from a library of selected books consisting of texts written by women discussing art, studio practice, feminist theory, queer theory, race, and a history of handwork. The public is welcome to sit with their own handwork and listen, or just observe.
