Liar's Couture in Disillusionment: Perspectives Beyond by Miriam Schaer

LIAR'S COUTURE, my new work, will be included in Disillusionment: Perspectives Beyond. The Disillusionment Project was conceptualized and developed by Robin Holder and Marina Gutierrez. Taller Boricua graciously hosted the exhibition under the coordination of Ronnie Bellini. A video of engaging interviews with 20 of the artists is currently in production.

Holder and Gutierrez curated 24 accomplished women artists who were invited to create works about Disillusionment, whether personal, cultural, political or global. The artworks they created range from "Me Too" narratives and hurricane reflections to historical texts using media that include welded woven steel, found assemblage, paper collage, sewing and body casting.
