Museum of Arts and Design: My Heart Is in These Medicine Bundles
October 9, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM$10
Sat, Oct 9 / 1–3:30 pm ET
1:00-2:00 pm: Conversation (onsite and online)
Nora Almeida, Volunteer, Interference Archive
Jen Hoyer, Volunteer, Interference Archive
Damian Jim, Visual Artist and Designer
Moderated by Gabriela López Dena, Manager of Public Programs
2:00-3:30 pm: Screen Printing workshop (onsite only)
Led by Interference Archive, Damian Jim, and MAD’s Education Department
This two-part public program takes Mary Holiday Black’s Ceremonial Basket, Black, Red, White (c. 1998) in MAD’s permanent collection as a catalyst for collaboration. Facilitated by Diné (Navajo) artist Damian Jim and members of the Brooklyn-based Interference Archive, this event highlights the importance of collective-making processes in crafts and celebrates the unexpected results of co-creation.
My Heart Is in These Medicine Bundles will begin with a conversation on the significance of baskets in Diné culture. These objects—used for everyday tasks and ceremonial purposes—are woven through labor-intensive practices that are usually carried out in community.
