Threads That Bind (Brooklyn, NY) – Call For Artists

Threads That Bind (Brooklyn, NY) – Call For Artists

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) announces a call for artists for Threads That Bind: When The Fabric Of Social Culture Unravels. This national juried show is for artists working in traditional and/or contemporary approaches to fiber. Submissions must use fiber materials and/or processes (weaving, knitting, spinning, rug-making, embroidery, crochet, braiding, beading, needlepoint, cross-stitch, dyeing, sewing) as a primary component of the work. The final form of submitted artwork may be a sculpture, photograph, performance or video, or wearable or decorative art or fashion, as well as an embroidered, woven, crocheted, or dyed or knitted wall-hung or free-standing piece. Large-scale work up to 96″ in any direction is welcome.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 15 Aug 2021

Questions to ask yourself about your work when making a submission:

  • How have you embraced fiber processes during our sustained period of forced social isolation?
  • Does fiber making provide comfort, or do you use fiber processes to push against the boundaries of social constraints and/or civil and social unrest?
  • What does fiber making in the 21st century mean to you, and why do you choose these processes and materials instead of or in addition to more “traditional” art-making media?

In addition to images of up to 3 artworks, please write 1-3 sentences answering one of the above 3 questions.

BWAC promotes emerging artists. Threads That Bind will highlight fiber artists who have not been able to show their work, especially due to the Covid pandemic. Shows are free, open to the public, and well-attended. BWAC offers participating artists the opportunity to show their work through their online Artsy gallery and BWAC website platforms. Any artist can make arrangements to host an artist talk, invite friends and colleagues to the space, and take advantage of all the networking opportunities with BWAC.
