Beyond Punch Cards | CURRENTS Reception
June 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
“We’re asking big questions about how weaving and coding can work together to change our perceptions of the world,” says co-curator Renata de Carvalho Gaui. “Can these practices converge to illustrate different identities, keep cultures and history alive, or resist obsolescence?”
Renata de Carvalho Gaui and Francesca Rodriguez Sawaya united an international group of artists who straddle the line between weaving and coding. The participating artists will be decidedly transdisciplinary. Glowing textiles, robotic looms, and “woven” projections are among the densely textured and fantastically interactive works set to appear in the show. “As a home of age-old weaving traditions and a more recent haven for new media artists, Santa Fe is the perfect place for Beyond Punch Cards,” says Rodriguez Sawaya.
