Ife Franklin - Indigo Project - Reception
Presented by Eliot School of Fine and Applied Arts
June 6, 2013
Ifé Franklin’s Indigo Project is a living testament to ancestors who lived and died producing two materials she works with closely: plantation-grown cotton and indigo. Ultimately, an 8-foot wooden structure, resembling a slave cabin, will be completely covered inside and out with Aso Adire indigo-dyed fabric, derived from West African Yoruba culture. This exhibition includes drawings, textiles and installation elements that will be part of the final project.
Ifé teaches drawing and fiber arts classes at the Eliot School. Her next offering is Adire West African Dyeing, June 22 & 23, 2013.
