With Liz Harvey

Wednesday, August 24, 2022,  10am PT
Learn More and Register
Admission: $10
Location: Online
Organizer: San Francisco School of Needlework & Design

Liz Harvey is a queer artist who makes textile-based works, including mixed media, collage, and performance, in ways that disorient viewers while pointing towards queer and environmental liberatory futures. Liz Harvey will share and discuss her work and how it engages with stitching as a way to deal with the bittersweet, particularly around dealing with climate disruption during the Anthropocene. Liz will also share how disorientation and embroidery come together as strategies to “queer” our relationship to nature.
