Zoë Buckman — Heavy Rag at Fort Gansevoort (New York)
Zoë Buckman’s Heavy Rag will be opening tonight at Fort Gansevoort from 6-8 PM. Comprised of various fabric creations, the exhibit calls back to things that Buckman closely associates with home and her memories growing up, paying homage to her mother. The techniques Buckman uses in this exhibit are all what someone might typically think are domestic crafts, such as embroidery and quilting. These techniques, combined with imagery of resilience such as boxing gloves, shows the contrast that is laced throughout the collection: soft yet hard, supportive yet resilient.
