Textile, Memory & Storytelling
Join us for an evening of an exciting conversation about the role of textiles in artistic practice: how can textiles be used in storytelling and preservation of memory? Can textiles help us heal?
The panel discussion features:
o Susan Fohr, maker, Curator of Education, Textile Museum of Canada (moderator)
o Michèle Karch-Ackerman, the artist behind the Bluebird Dress Factory, currently on view at Campbell House
o Sage Paul, artist, designer and leader of Indigenous fashion, craft and textiles and Artistic Director of Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto
o Dorie Millerson, artist, Associate Professor in Textiles, Chair of Material Art & Design Program at OCAD University
The panel is part of the programming accompanying Bluebird Dress Factory by Michèle Karch-Ackerman.
Bluebird Dress Factory explores the intersection of time and death, humanity and ornithology. For over twenty-five years, Michèle Karch-Ackermans artistic practice has involved the act of making of clothing for ghosts, the dead, the forgotten, and the hurting.
