The puns are manifold at LACE's new group show, "Unraveling Collective Forms." Curated by Daniela Lieja Quintanar and featuring the work of some 20 artists, the show's concept and motif reference the quipu — a coded, ostensibly commercial language "written" in knotted rope, which once helped indigenous populations in the Peruvian regions resist the pernicious control of colonial incursions. In the curation there are many allegories of knots, ties, strings, community, commonality, craft and myriad threads both narrative and material. Many but not all of the artists directly use thread or fabric in their materials; all look to the ways in which collectivity functions in society and art. Throughout the exhibition, watch for performative and interactive events such as readings, storytelling, discussions and actual basket-weaving.
