Hook&Loop group residency
at AUTOMAT August 10th - 28th 2022.
& pop up shop
THE TOOLS WE USE celebrates the range of our practices while calling attention to the hierarchies of power that shape them, both within and outside of the Disabled community. Our determination to create transcends inequities in financial resources, opportunities, space, time, materials, and access. Featured artists work on canvas and on paper towels, alone and with support staff. We create work about, for, and with our Disabled bodies. Our interdependence sustains us - we are here. Hook&Loop’s programming and exhibition at AUTOMAT will transform over time, a reflection of our needs and our continuing critical conversations about the systems that perpetuate these hierarchies of power. The exhibition includes animation, ceramics, painting, sculpture, video, collage, and textiles. THE TOOLS WE USE will feature performances including music, dance, poetry, a DJ set/dance party, discourse, and spoken word at the opening on August 1, as well as on Saturdays August 13, 20, and 27.
