Vibe Overgaard: Spindle City

Opening Reception: Friday, March 17, 6–8pm.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program presents "Spindle City," a solo exhibition of work by Vibe Overgaard, curated by Media Farzin. "Spindle City" takes the textile industry as a context from which to examine the workings and impact of growth economies. It is based on the artist’s research in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and Lowell, Massachusetts, major hubs of industrial cotton production in the United States, and draws on the artist’s background growing up in a Danish town founded as a manufacturing center for textiles.

The exhibition features a video essay, "Spindle City", and a series of sculptures made of ceramic, wood, metal, and thread. The circuit is a recurring motif: from the fiber that winds through sculptures that evoke industrial looms, to the animated lines of the video, which symbolically trace a critical path through legacies of capitalism, colonialism, slavery, and the welfare state.
