Society! Artwork in Residence

The Evanston Art Center (EAC) is pleased to announce its fifth Society! artist resident, Adriana Kuri Alamillo, who will occupy the upstairs gallery at the Art Center from March 5 - 26, 2017.    For her project, Kuri is working on a series of weavings, using homemade backstrap looms that visualize and obfuscate the numbered information received regarding the deaths and disappearances related to the War on Drugs In the project space, Kuri will present pre-prepared bundles of white yarn and containers of red and black paint. Visitors to the space will be invited to write their own thoughts and protests in regards to the war on drugs and the effects it has had towards human life. On the opposite wall, the artist will install three working backstrap looms, where she will weave on Sundays and Thursdays throughout the course of the residency. The other two looms are there as an invitation for people to sit and weave with her, counting each string they feed into the weaving and reflecting on every life that each string represents. Kuri hopes to encourage audience participation in the shared activity of creation, to reflect and to have conversation, because “weaving and textile work is, at the end of the day, a historically communal activity.”
