Miguel Arzabe shows a new series of large-scale weavings made from paper ephemera—posters, flyers, hand-outs—collected from art exhibitions. Drawing inspiration from both the traditions of indigenous textiles and modernist abstract painting, Arzabe's weavings are physical archives of cultural output and raise questions of authorship, labor, and how value is created. Museum visitors have the opportunity to work in parallel with Arzabe on their own paper weavings, working with art magazines and auction catalogs while learning simple weaving techniques.
