NOTE: As of Oct. 14, registration for this event has reached the maximum capacity. We appreciate your interest and remind you that the exhibition of Weymar’s work will be on display in the Collins Library until December 12, 2019.
Artist Diana Weymar is the found of the Tiny Pricks project in which participants stitch quotes by Trump into antique or inherited textiles to create a material record of his presidency. Pieces are donated to a travelling collection that has been exhibited around the country. The methodology of the project is based on social media sharing, participatory political protest, and craftivism.
Weymar, who lives in British Columbia, is also the founder of Interwoven Stories, a collection of stitched pages that focus on personal narratives and stories. Pages from Tiny Pricks, Interwoven Stories, and Refashioning Identity will be on display in the Collins Library in conjunction with the All Stitched Up Exhibit.
