Jovencio de la Paz: New Old Work
WhenThursday, Apr. 20, 2017, 12 – 1:30 p.m.
Description

Please join us for a talk by artist, writer, and educator Jovencio de la Paz. De la Paz's work explores the intersection of textile processes such as weaving, dye, and surface design as they relate to broader concerns of ancient technology, language, codification, community, and identity. Interested in the ways transient or ephemeral experiences are embodied
in material, de la Paz looks to how knowledge, stories, and memories are transmitted through society in space and time, whether semiotically by language or haptically by made things. He is currently Assistant Professor and Curricular Head of Fibers at the University of Oregon.
