Richmond, BC.- The Richmond Art Gallery presents “Fibred Optics” a group exhibition of works by four Canadian artists. “Fibred Optics” features four artists whose work incorporates natural and synthetic fibres, old and new technologies, and methodologies from the world of craft and contemporary art. Produced through laborious processes of knotting, stitching, and weaving, the work in this exhibition invites viewers to contemplate the ways in which multi-sensory information can be sutured and layered to produce meaning about the worlds we inhabit. Each artist uses fibre — a three-dimensional, quotidian material — to produce and transmit individual and collective narratives that are at once coherent and fragmented, visible and invisible. “Fibred Optics” opens on June 23rd and remains on view through August 28th.
