Allyson Vieira

Visiting Artist Presentation Series

Date: Friday, October 15, 2021
Time: 11:00am EDT

Join artist and professor, Allyson Vieira, as she discusses the trajectory of her artistic practice and traces the influence of the ancient world within it. In Vieira’s work, time is often stretched, folded, and twisted: the present and future treated as if they belong to an ancient archeological site. In a new series of weavings made from plastic bags and construction debris netting, she continues her investigations of labor, craft, and the material evidence of time, while considering the knowledge, mythologies, and forms of communication that we inherit from past civilizations and reiterate to the next.
