Racism: In the Face of Hate We Resist - Preview

Nov 01, 2020 to Jan 10, 2021

The preview of Racism: In the Face of Hate We Resist, which is a part of the Textile Center's We Are the Story quilts series, is located on ASI's upper promenade in the Nelson Cultural Center outside Larson Hall. Viewing is included in ASI museum admission.

ASI continues to work with the Textile Center and Women of Color Quilters Network (WCQN) in collaboration with their seven-part series of multi-site quilt exhibitions, We Are the Story.

Part of this series will be a juried quilt show exhibiting 40-50 quilts in Spring 2021 - Racism: In the Face of Hate We Resist. These quilts will be shown at other cultural institutions in the Twin Cities. ASI is fortunate to present a preview of this Spring 2021 exhibition on the Promenade outside of Larson Hall on view through Sunday, January 10, 2021.

We Are the Story is a series of multi-site, juried quilt exhibitions that builds upon symbols of liberation, resistance and empowerment, offering a visually compelling account of the breadth of experiences and struggles that comprise Black history in an honest and critical way.  The initiative, curated by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi and organized by the WCQN and the Textile Center, explores the themes of police brutality and racism in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd.  Read more from the Textile Center about the project.

“We’ll tell the story of our culture,” curator Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi says. “These are historic times, and we’ll keep quilting.”
