"Stitched" is an exhibition focusing on artwork that makes use of embroidery and stitching techniques. The group show will be in two parts, the first opening being on Friday, March 24th and the second opening Friday, June 23rd.

We're thrilled to be announcing this month's exhibition on International Women's Day!  Embroidery, stitching, and other fibers techniques that fall under the category of "craft" have sometimes been viewed as separate or lesser than "fine art" in the arts community as a whole. This is in large part because these techniques and skills are historically associated with women and "domestic tasks", overlooking the intense skill and creativity required to create the artwork. It has been exciting seeing opinions drastically shift about craft —a category many of our artists fall under at the gallery year-round — in recent years.  We are thrilled to be highlighting this specific medium and the artists behind it, both female-identifying and not, at Paradigm.

Leading up to the exhibitions, HAHA Magazine will be featuring each artist, and more about their processes and thoughts behind their work.  Artist names below will become clickable one by one as the interviews are publishing.

We are thrilled for you all to dive into our biggest feature yet on a specific medium with us!
