Unraveling: Aranda\Lasch + Terrol Dew Johnson

12 June - 26 September 2021

Tradition and technology unite for an exhibition of dynamic woven sculptures created through the collaboration of New York and Tucson-based design studio Aranda\Lasch and globally-renowned artist Terrol Dew Johnson, a member of the Tohono O’odham Nation.

After recognizing their shared practice and purpose, the artists joined forces in Tucson, Arizona to create sculptures that blend traditional Native American weaving techniques and cutting-edge digital fabrication methods. The exhibition title, Unraveling, refers to the coiled basket technique created by Tohono O’odham artists of the Sonoran Desert. The coil technique informs the patterns and structures of Aranda\Lasch + Terrol Dew Johnson’s designs, resulting in a harmonious observance of ancestral and contemporary customs, methods, and materials.
