Threading Memories / MiKyoung Lee
The foundation of MiKyoung Lee’s art was shaped by an early fascination with textiles used in her childhood homes in Korea—domestic fabrics made with long-used techniques and forms. Threading Memories / MiKyoung Lee explores memories—from the artist’s childhood and from later chapters of her life—that she visually expresses through her textile art practice.
By twisting and knotting, a method akin to weaving, Lee uses common, mass-produced products such as pipe cleaners, zip ties, and twist ties to create dynamic, lush large-scale sculptures as well as intimate two-dimensional, wall-mounted works.

The Ten Commandments of Renée Cox
The Ten Commandments of Renée Cox explores motherhood, liberation, isolation, self-realization, and joy through the four-decade career of Renée Cox. The artist, born in 1960 in Colgate, Jamaica, and active in New York, works across a range of media using her own body—in different guises and provocative states of dress and undress—to celebrate Black womanhood, occupy multiple identities and realities, and deconstruct historical stereotypes.
From her first self-portrait in 1980 to her most recent work, Cox investigates sexism, the racially dehumanizing commodification of the Black body, gender fluidity, and the power of Afrofuturism. The artist invites viewers to join her as she “unleashes the potential of the ordinary and brings it into a new realm of possibilities."
