Connecting Threads: Recent Acquisitions from the Modern and Contemporary Art Department

Tuesday, August 24, 2021 - 6:00 PM

Running Time: 1 hour

The recent acquisitions from the modern and contemporary art department span a wide range of media, from digital artwork to installation to mixed media paintings, among others.

This talk focuses on recently acquired works that incorporate fabric as a medium, including two-dimensional pieces that integrate collaged burlap sacks and used clothing, as well as installations made with shoelaces and pantyhose.

In this talk, join Laura Almeida and Caitlin Swindell to explore how the use of these materials allows artists to tell complex stories, challenge societal norms, confront the meaning of historical memories, and negotiate differences across cultures. Stitching together common threads, these artists create tangled surfaces that invite viewers to consider the multitude of meanings in the materiality of contemporary art.

This lecture is part of the Denver Art Museum's summer series,  "An Inside Look: A Series of Curator Talks."  Please visit for more information and to register for more lectures.
