DETAIL: Today’s MHRI 2020 Artist Highlight is Victoria van der Laan! ACG is dedicated to sharing art throughout the community even through difficult times. Each day this week we will be posting a work from a different artist in the show and learning more about what drives their practice. Read more below to learn about what drives van der Laan’s eco-friendly practice.
“Gravely concerned about the climate crisis and the harmful role that the textile industry plays in it, I have committed to using no new textiles in my art practice going forward, relying only on what is already in my studio or on vintage, dead stock, or repurposed textiles to make my works.” (Excerpt from the artist’s statement)
