Artist Rebecca Levi will talk about her work with John Chaich, curator of the recent exhibition Queer Threads, on Wednesday, January 14, at 7:00 PM at the Bureau.

Rebecca Levi’s thread-based and pen & ink work is influenced by images in found photography, mid-century magazines, and 1970s porn. In her embroidered portraits, she subverts the norms of the medium with the unexpected, inviting a playful collision between traditional handicrafts and the untraditional themes of queer identity and gender performativity.

John Chaich featured Rebecca Levi’s work in the exhibition Queer Threads: Crafting Identity & Community, which debuted at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art last year and is traveling to MICA, Baltimore in December 2015. He also selected her work as one of the artworks in the recently released Visual AIDS “Play Smart” trading cards series.

John Chaich is a curator, designer, and writer based in New York City. He holds an MFA in Communications Design from Pratt Institute. Chaichcreative.com

Rebecca Levi is a New York City born and based embroidery and pen & ink artist. She received her BA from McGill University in Montreal. www.rebeccalevi.com

The exhibition Queering the Lines: Rebecca Levi – Thread & Ink is showing at the Bureau until February 1, 2015.
