RUFFLES, REPAIR & RITUAL:
The Fine Art of Fixing

RRR

This inaugural exhibition mounted 150 artist works to honor the 150th anniversary of the Wedding Cake House being built. 
 
The exhibition has four components, each with different curators: Long term installations composed of commissions built into the space, flat works for viewing on the walls, literary and research projects presented in a book, and time-based pieces that were both on view in the house and through live performances and screenings.
 
Conceptually artists were asked to consider the following; pattern and the textile materials acquisitioned from the house in the collections of the RISD Museum and URI, decoration and the ornate architecture of the house, the history of the neighborhood and city over the last 150 years, immigrant experiences, changing ideas within feminism and concepts of sisterhood, as well as big picture ideas about what it means to repair both material things and relationships, cultures and histories. 
 
This scale of exhibition foregrounds the breadth and depth of extraordinary artists in Providence, in our extended community of artist run spaces, as well as artists who have built relationships with us from afar - seeking out models of alternative spaces that integrate feminism and identity in cooperative, accountable, and visionary ways.
