10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join us for a conversation with Liz Harvey in a discussion and showcase of her current work.

Liz Harvey is a queer artist who makes textile-based works, including mixed media, collage, and performance, in ways that disorient viewers while pointing towards queer and environmental liberatory futures.

Along with making objects, Liz engages in performance projects in collaboration with choreographers and scientists. Most recently, her work has been featured in Feral Fabric Journal and has been shown at Plan-d Gallery in Los Angeles, the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, and the Terrain Biennial in Alameda, CA.

Liz Harvey will share and discuss her work and how it engages with stitching as a way to deal with the bittersweet, particularly around dealing with climate disruption during the Anthropocene.

Liz will also share how disorientation and embroidery come together as strategies to “queer” our relationship to nature. Using dance, textiles, and text, her work often makes use of what she calls time-traveling, to engage with overlooked stories. Her recent project, the lost ones, invited participants to embroider critically endangered flowers on a garment worn by a performer in multiple outdoor performances in order to help viewers navigate yearning and melancholy.
