Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community

A new retrospective in New York examines the creation of identity in the LGBTQ community through thread-based craft techniques.

Whether we realize it or not, we are constantly striving to find a better sense of self in our daily lives. Through music, movies, or social interactions, each and every encounter we have helps shape who we are. Fashion is no different. As a means of expression, what we wear, subconsciously or not, reveals a lot about our personalities and our tastes, creating our own unique identities.

This is the main focus of a new show, titled Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community, at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. The exhibition examines how artists, more specifically queer artists, work to find a greater sense of self through the fabrics that they weave together and the techniques and processes that they use.

The exhibition opens at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art on January 17 and runs until March 16, 2014. [Refinery29]
