This semester, students in the spring 2022 Interdisciplinary Arts Residency course with Judy Frater collaborated with traditional weaving, embroidery, block-printing, and bandhani artists from the Kutch district of India. The students look forward to sharing their collaboration experiences throughout this class in a public presentation.
Co-design teams comprising UW–Madison students enrolled in Judy Frater’s spring 2022 Interdisciplinary Arts Residency course and traditional artisans from Kutch, India have worked together this semester to present the exhibition Coming Together: Culturally Inspired Creation and a public trunk show. The work being sold will consist of limited editions of the co-designed textiles as well as pieces designed and produced by the artisans. During this time, the exhibition will be open and there will be a reception. The trunk show is supported by the Global Artisans Initiative.
This exhibition is a collaboration between traditional textile artisan designers in the Kutch district in northwest India and students enrolled in Judy Frater’s Interdisciplinary Arts Residency course at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. These final works, along with their inspiration object from the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection, will be on view in celebration of the language of tradition, collaboration, and hand work in textile design.
Judy Frater, spring 2022 interdisciplinary artist-in-residence, will talk about the residency and upcoming exhibition Coming Together: Culturally Inspired Creation.
