Larry Weyand: Artist Talk

FIA’s Artist Talk series returned with a public presentation by Cross Currents artist-in-residency, Larry Weyand.

Based out of St. John’s Newfoundland, Weyand is a rug hooker whose work defies the established properties of traditional floor decor, domesticity and gender. Fueled by the complex history of processed foods, emotional trauma, autoethnography, queerness, and domestic spaces, Larry investigates how hard-to-swallow narratives can occupy space within the soft, fluffy boundaries of textile-based craft. 

The Artist Talk was held at the SUF hall in Barr’d Islands and there was a warm and plentiful community turnout.
