Christien Meindertsma: Everything Connects
March 21, 2019 - October 20, 2019
The Art Institute of Chicago:
111 S Michigan Ave,
Chicago, IL 60603

“Everything Connects” showcases two of Meindertsma’s recent projects: she displays each step involved in transforming raw flax into an entirely biodegradable chair, and uses fiber-sorting machines to scan and sort 1,000 wool sweaters based on their material content, highlighting frequent inaccuracies on the sweaters’ labels and illustrating that clothing is often made from a wider range of materials than indicated.
