worked up | wound up panel - Wednesday, October 17, 6:30-7:30pm
Please join us at the Union Gallery on Wednesday, October 17th from 6:30-7:30pm for a panel discussion with Ottawa artist Lindsey Wilson and scholars Johanna Amos and Jill Price. The discussion will revolve around the current exhibition, worked up | wound up, Wilson’s large-scale installation that explores the artist’s intimate relationship with wool and plant-based fibers.
Lindsey Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily with textile-based materials. She received a BFA with a minor in Gender Studies from Queen’s University in 2015 and an MFA from the University of Ottawa in 2017. Her work has been exhibited at artist-run centres and university galleries in Kingston, Toronto, and Ottawa.
Jill Price is a current PHD student in Cultural Studies at Queen’s University. Her working thesis, Woven Technologies: Colonial Persistence and Resistance through Text’iles in Canada explores the narratives embedded within the fibres, patterns, processes and exchange of textiles and how they continue to impact human identity and physical geography.
Johanna Amos is an assistant adjunct professor in the department of Art History & Art Conservation at Queen’s University where she teaches courses in modern art, fashion, and textile history. Her current projects include an edited volume, Stitching the Self: Identity and the Needle Arts (with Lisa Binkley), and a collaborative SSHRC- funded exploration of the role of practice in art and design education.
