SDA Juried Member Exhibition: Forecast // Recast

Chehalem Cultural Center

Newberg, Oregon 97132
United States
December 6, 2022 – January 27th, 2023
Artist Reception: December 9, 5 – 7pm PT

Forecast//Recast brings together artists and artworks that explore ideas of predicting, reshaping, and re-predicting — works that offer a glimpse of possible futures, reexamine historical narratives, shed light on needed social and ecological interventions, and bend inquiry towards new aims to reframe the way we view the world.

Highlighting fiber and textile-based materials and techniques, cross-disciplinary practices, experimental processes, and material innovation, this exhibition prompts a reshaping of the future with works that predict our current trajectories, cast a new gaze on the past, and revise what is to come.

A Note from our Juror,

Tanya Aguiñiga

The premise of Forecast//Recast made me think deeply about the current state of our earth and global societies, and how as artists our work is deeply important as a source of healing, recording histories and re-shaping how to live justly. In reviewing works submitted to this year’s call, I was moved by the vulnerability and urgency exhibited in works. A huge thank you to all who answered the call for this years’ Surface Design Association competition. Thank you for sharing your unique visions and expressions for our shared future through textiles, for helping push our medium forward and for making work that reminds us to keep finding ways to learn and tell alternative histories.
