USA: Thread Lines continues as Pop Up
After completing her residency at the Wyckoff House Museum in Brooklyn, New York, Dutch textile artist Farida Sedoc was asked to show her work at the Smithsonian Pop Up Museum in NYC from 12 and 13 November.
The Smithsonian Pop Up Museum is a part of the Museum of Impact programme. ‘Thread Lines’ was an Artist-in-Residence programme with Dutch textile artist Farida Sedoc at Brooklyn’s Wyckoff House Museum. The residency, which connected heritage with contemporary culture to explore our relationship with fabric, fibres and textiles, included research, workshops, public programmes and art-making over the course of two months in August and September. Farida Sedoc transformed the historic Wyckoff House’s 18th-century formal parlour into an art studio that was open to the public for weekly programmes and workshops.
In the Netherlands the work of Farida Sedoc, including work she made at Wyckoff House Museum, is currently on display in the group show at W139 in Amsterdam.
