Ancient Looms Modern Threads

9:00 AM
This exhibition investigates the present-day production and use of a traditional woman’s dress-like garment called a huipil (pronounced wee-peal) from Oaxaca, Mexico. Showcasing huipiles from the Logan Museum’s Frances Bristol Textile Collection, the exhibition demonstrates how indigenous weavers in Oaxaca today have both adapted and preserved their weaving traditions, reframing these textiles as objects of creative expression and economic necessity.
Through videos, diagrams, and textile displays visitors will explore how indigenous women today continue to weave huipiles as well as innovate new hybrid textiles on the backstrap loom. Learn how these beautiful garments are constructed and how they have changed over time to include new materials, new designs, and new audiences.
This exhibit is open daily, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Grafter: A Duo Performance for Voices, Bodies, and Electronics

12:30 PM
Guest Artists Jessica Aszodi and Jenna Lyle perform a new, collaboratively devised work for voice and electronics that incorporates voices, moving/sounding bodies and live electronics. The performers interact using samples, both of their voices, choreographed movement and live processing. The piece places energetic focus on the body, simultaneously altering sonic outcomes through choreographic affectation. The piece was premiered at the Resonant Bodies Festival in NYC in September 2015. The work continues to evolve as the performers actively seek to experiment with alternative modes of communication to different audiences and spaces. Since 2015, the work has been performed in Chicago, San Diego, and Omaha and will continue to tour throughout North America.
This twenty-minute performance is followed by a Q&A with the artists.

#Herstory: Black Women at Beloit College

7:00 PM
Dreamgirls, a black women support group, will be hosting #Herstory: Black Women at Beloit College, to discuss black women's resilience at Beloit College. Ms. Namoonga Mantina will facilitate the discussion with Dr. Lisa Anderson-Levy, Mrs. Erica Daniels, Dr. Sonya Johnson, and Ms. Marijuana Sawyer to explore the ways that black women have combated isolation and oppression in a space that was not built for them. Use this panel to help understand the importance of recognizing the effects of intersectionality on black women, and applying this knowledge to push forward on Beloit College’s effort in being an anti-racist institution. We hope to see many faces there as we shed light on a issue that is often overlooked.
