  • Montalvo Arts Center | Threads: Weaving Humanity

    Montalvo Arts Center | Threads: Weaving Humanity

    RoCoCo will present their latest sculptural installation as part of this year's Art on the Grounds Festival at Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California. The festival kicks off the exhibition Threads: Weaving Humanity which will feature new textile works throughout Montalvo's historic gardens and grounds by a group of emerging international artists. These newly commissioned works use braiding, stitching, patching, and mending as a metaphor for weaving the threads of our diverse communities into a shared social fabric.

    Highly sensitive to the elements, fiber works are traditionally displayed inside carefully controlled environments of galleries and museums. Serving as an analogy for our human vulnerabilities, Threads: Weaving Humanity places these works outdoors where we can appreciate and witness the fragility and the resilience of the materials as they interact with the natural surroundings. Many of the works on view will be created in collaboration with the local community and offer opportunities for conversation about connecting through our shared humanity, including practicing kindness, compassion, integrity, respect, empathy, forgiveness, and self-reflection.

    Opening night celebration is July 19, 2019 from 6pm to 9pm. The exhibition will be on view through October 25, 2019. RSVP online for opening night celebration here.
