Maria Guzmán Capron featured in "Power in Every Thread" at Craft Contemporary

January 8 – May 5, 2024

Power in Every Thread: Maria A. Guzmán Capron and Minga Opazo presents two artists, Maria A. Guzmán Capron and Minga Opazo, whose use of textiles unite them in an exhibition featuring a range of impressive two- and three-dimensional works.  Minga’s work draws attention to environmental degradation caused by textile waste, while Maria’s aims to highlight awareness of multicultural identities to empower those who step out of so-called societal norms. Both artists recycle fabrics, transforming them into unique forms of expression—their destination rerouted from the landfill to museums, galleries, or collector’s homes.    

The exhibition is curated by Alma Ruiz.
