BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet
Features:Price: $7–$10; free first Friday
Men are taking up the needle in this year's fiber-focused BAM Biennial. You may encounter Tacoma Art Museum curator Rock Hushka (who knew he could sew?) seated in the galleries as artist in residence, doing performance embroidery. Some of the region’s top artists also have work in this show, including three gorgeous beaded pieces by Sherry Markovitz and a trompe l’oeil cardboard sculpture by Scott Fife. It’s also a great place for discovering emerging talent. David Chatt’s Love, Dad encases 30 years of his father’s “friendly but not intimate” letters in a ghostly white, bead-encrusted, padlocked webbing, where they can be glimpsed but never read—like the man himself.
