CAAF Open Studio with Kenzie Housego

June 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Open Studio with Kenzie Housego
CAAF Studio, suite #435 on Level 4 at cSPACE Marda Loop
Thursday, June 6 from 6:30 to 8:30pm

Come to the Calgary Allied Arts Foundation’s studio to meet our current resident, Kenzie Housego, and get a first hand look at her process.

Kenzie is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes textiles, embroidery, new media, and assemblage mediums. The use of technology such as LEDs, Arduino micro-controllers, texting, and screens within her research is symbolic of the virtual realms in which we participate as a society. Her recent series “IU” combines textile craft and technology to explore contemporary courtship, technology, and historical signs and signifiers connected to dating and romance. Housego’s artwork often offers an invitation for interactivity, encouraging viewers to shift from passive observers to active co-producers as they engage with the digital media, experiencing other points of view, and ultimately forming their own individual meanings.
