Cutting-Edge Performance and Film at The Textile Museum

INTERWOVEN: Evenings in Performance
Friday, July 23, 8-10 PM
Saturday, July 24, 8-10 PM
Join the Embassy of Denmark and The Textile Museum for two evenings of cutting-edge textile performances by international artists, hosted by INTERWOVEN.
On July 23, New York-based fashion collective threeASFOUR, whose designers hail from Lebanon, Israel, and Tajikistan, will collaborate on a performance highlighting their ethereal and sculptural approach to textile design. The July 24 program will feature a new, site-specific work by Copenhagen-based duo Henrik Vibskov & Andreas Emenius. The Circular Series, Section 4 uses a large rigid, geometric structure contrasted with explosions of color to explore human rituals, the constructions we build and social isolation. Following the performances, Sabrina Gschwandtner, founder of KnitKnit magazine, will moderate a Q&A with the artists. The evening events will also feature film screenings. Fee: $20 (each evening); advance ticket purchase required. Buy your tickets online today.

This event is sponsored in part by The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark as a Danish Cultural Event. Washington D.C.’s NPR affiliate station, WAMU American University Radio, is the official media sponsor of INTERWOVEN and The Normandy Hotel of The Doyle Collection is the hotel sponsor. INTERWOVEN, a New York collaborative, provides a platform for artists to create in the intersection of film, performance, installation and visual arts.
