Please join us (and spread the word!) on Thursday, April 20, at 12:00 PM in the North Creek Events Center at UW Bothell for a talk by artist, writer, and educator Jovencio de la Paz. De la Paz's work explores the intersection of textile processes such as weaving, dye, and surface design as they relate to broader concerns of ancient technology, language, codification, community, and identity. Interested in the ways transient or ephemeral experiences are embodied in material, de la Paz looks to how knowledge, stories, and memories are transmitted through society in space and time, whether semiotically by language or haptically by made things. He is currently Assistant Professor and Curricular Head of Fibers at the University of Oregon.
De la Paz's visit is co-sponsored by the MA in Cultural Studies, Global Studies, and Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at UW Bothell.
WHEN & WHERE: THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, NORTH CREEK EVENTS CENTER, UW BOTHELL. Further event information can be found HERE.
