Liminality* features works by Cycle 13 of Textile Arts Center’s Artist in Residence program. These artists are unified by their collective explorations of migration, memory, and healing through the nine-month residency; each working to challenge the physical, emotional, and theoretical thresholds they encounter.

Introspection is an inherent part of processing individual and collective trauma. How do we reconcile memories in an attempt to find a path forward? How do we communicate the stories that have formed us? As we retell and recount these stories to ourselves and over generations, our memories can morph and warp. By exposing these memories, we create a space for the comprehension of these stories and their origins.

Each artist’s piece offers insight into their inner world. The physicality and repetition of textile processes can lend themselves to a contemplative space. Healing can be found in the process of letting your hands hold those memories, teasing them into a different shape, and allowing for reexamination, again and again.

*1. relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process.
2. occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.
