LITTORAL LIGHT II -Ramsgate, UK. Friday 28th 2017 by Susan Allbert

I'm excited to be part of the line-up for Littoral Light II, the annual twilight art exhibition set in the tidal zone of Ramsgate beach, Kent, UK. Organized by the artists' collective ARTICLE 10, it runs for one night only. As the sun sets and the tide recedes, 40 British and international artists will exhibit unique and exciting sculpture, installation, sound, and light with the white cliffs of Ramsgate as the backdrop. 

  I'm showing a series of luminescent needlepoint panels which take their cue from old embroidery samplers. Installed along the cliff face, they examine notions of displacement and belonging.

False Dichotomy June 24th-26th by Susan Allbert

I am very excited to be part of this show curated by the wonderful Libby Clarke. I'll be showing a new series of prints, this time on t-shirts and all part of a collaboration with the amazing Japanese master indigo dyers Buaisou Brooklyn. We've been experimenting with laser cutting and Katagami, mixing traditional methods of dyeing and printing with new technologies

The exhibition centers on fine art printmaking that intersects with, depends upon, and even conquers high technology. Invited artists use data, sensors, alternate processes, wearables, performance, and other technologies to produce multiples, texts, and other sorts of editions.
