Good Morning Cruel World
July 16 - August 20, 2022
Alexis Mabry’s textiles symbolize an alternative Americana. They are whimsical documents of the unconventional archetypes and subversive creativity of subculture. Good Morning Cruel World is a recollection of real and imagined anecdotes from Mabry’s life. Inspired by coming-of-age perspectives on escapism and rebellion, her practice questions the social influence on personal identity. She is interested in the ever-shifting methods of storytelling within the tradition of textile-making and the blurred boundaries between craft and contemporary art.
