Chris Lasch and artist Terrol Dew Johnson give a talk at the Sarasota Museum of Art titled, Reimagining Ancient Beauty.
Chris Lasch of design studio Aranda\Lasch and Terrol Dew Johnson, artist and co-founder of Tohono O’odham Community Action (TOCA), collaborated to produce a collection of experimental baskets and woven constructions that engage the traditional art of basket weaving while extending that tradition through new methods. The collaboration explores algorithmic design as a continuum stretching from the latest computer-aided techniques in design and architecture, back through the creative traditions of one of the world’s oldest art forms: weaving and basketry. Come join us as Lasch and Johnson share insights on the work and their decade-long collaboration that re-imagines an ancient material practice within the contemporary world. Thursday 26 October 5:30pm
