Double Double: Chinese Knots Making Workshop

Double Double: Chinese Knots Making Workshop

Description

Emily Wang and Alice Sparkly Kat will lead a workshop on making various traditional Chinese knots, which symbolize both struggle and unity. By attaching stories of oppression to knots, participants form a constellation of stories throughout generations and varying waves of immigration and struggle, into an amulet and good luck charm.

Emily Wang is a visual artist, musician and astrology and tarot practitioner. She has recently shown at Practice, Yonkers, 80WSE, New York and Assembly Room, New York. She performs under the moniker Lima Rei and with the band dies smely at music festivals and different venues around New York City.

Alice Sparkly Kat is a queer astrologer of color with four years of experience in individual consultation, lectures, workshops, and writing. They use astrology to speculate on the ways culture inhabits biology. To them, astrology is a process of imagining the cultural alien through the metaphor of outer space.

No RSVP required, this workshop is free and open to the public at the For Freedoms exhibition space. Thursday Night, ICP's Pay as You Wish museum rates apply from 6 - 9pm.
