Christina Forrer Conversation 2018 cotton, wool, and watercolor 30 1/2 x 37 1/2 inches
Opens Friday, March 16, 2018, 6-8 PM
In the East Wing, CvsD is excited to present a small show of new works by Christina Forrer. Born in Zürich, Switzerland, and based in Los Angeles, Forrer makes tapestries that are also psychologically charged, but often by means of energetic interaction dynamics suspended in a fraught narrative. Brilliant, raucous, warm, and biting, they bring traditional Swiss textiles into a thoroughly contemporary comic context, inside jokes looming large in her brightly colored woven surfaces. Recent institutional exhibitions include Grappling Hold at the Swiss Institute, New York (2017) and Unorthodox at the Jewish Museum, New York (2015).
