Pop-Up Opening Kami Galeana

/// July 1, 2019

“An Homage to Nimble Fingers” is a body of work that Kami Galeana created to acknowledge and honor centuries’ worth of embroidery produced by women from various places around the world.

Galeana states, “Embroidery is one of the earliest art forms, but it rarely survives into modernity. As long as humans have been clothed, they have desired to adorn these garments with embellishments. In this sense, embroidery is a collective heritage, but this skill in many nations was relegated to women in some part as a concession for their exemption from “higher” forms of art.

Galeana’s work is available for purchase in the Museum Store throughout July.
