Step over the line and enter a space created by Los Angeles-based furniture designer Tanya Aguiñiga. In her new site-specific installation, Aguiñiga uses weaving techniques she learned in Chiapas, Mexico to create a sweeping three-dimensional environment crafted entirely from yarn and custom-built furniture. Drawing on her experience growing up on the US/Mexico border, the exhibition considers how physical borders and cultural boundaries are traversed everyday in an interconnected world. Visitors will also be invited to add their own weavings to the installation.
