Being-With, Winter 2021-2022 Premium Member Online Exhibition

We are pleased to announce a call for images for Being – With, SDA’s Winter 2021-2022 Premium Member Online Exhibition, curated by Soledad Muñoz.

BEING-WITH reflects upon the role of textile artists and designers within the art world and society at large. The concept of the Being-With, the term coined by French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy, refers to the idea that “I” does not come before “we” and that there is no existence without co-existence.

Selected works will remind us – either directly or with nuance – that the private vs public and nature vs civilization binaries are not opposing constructs but one and the same. Cloth can capture the makers’ embodied experiences, aiding us in the awareness of our humanity and interconnected existence.

Following the topics of this year’s conference entitled Community Ties, this exhibition will include works that are subjective in nature but are directed towards the world around us. The works will demonstrate the archival properties of cloth and other materials, establishing that the personal is political.


Soledad Fátima Muñoz is an interdisciplinary artist, cultural worker and researcher born in her family’s exile in Canada and raised in Rancagua, Chile. Her work seeks to explore the ever-changing social spaces we inhabit and the archival properties of cloth. She holds a Diploma in Textile Arts from Capilano University, a Bachelor in Fine Arts Degree from Emily Carr University of Arts + Design and a Master in Fine Arts from the Department of Fiber and Material Studies of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Soledad has been the recipient of several awards, including the City of Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award for Emerging Artist, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago New Artist Society Full Merit Scholarship, the Emily Carr University of Art + Design President’s Media Award and most recently the Textile Society of America Student and New Professionals Award.
