Tapestry, Barbara Nessim, Non-Verbal Communication, and Street Art

I wanted to share a few links to things I’ve been looking at/reading. Check out these articles about Christina Forrer’s tapestries, Barbara Nessim, a showcase of 25 women street artists, and Susan Te Kahurangi Kingan, an artist who communicates solely through her art after she stopped speaking at age four.

  1. Artist Christina Forrer Spends 200 Hours Resurrecting Centuries-Old Tapestry Tradition (Huffington Post).
  2. How To Be A Revolutionary Feminist Artist, While Hardly Noticing. Also- a retrospective of Nessim’s work is on display now (until January 11th) at the Bard Graduate Center in upstate NY
  3. 25 Women Pushing the Limits of Street Art Around the World (Huffington Post).
  4. This Outsider Artist Stopped Speaking As A Child, Communicates Solely Through Her Work
