A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce Baize, an exhibition by Alumni Artist Lisa Cooperman. Cooperman will show a new body of work featuring textile sculptures inspired by life in California’s Central Valley. In her second solo exhibition at A.I.R. Cooperman’s work delves into the complexities of Stockton, an historic river delta town and epicenter of pioneer mythologizing, exploitive labor practices and environmental malfeasance. Stockton’s clamorous narratives inform this series of abstracted wall-hung pieces. Working in the make-do tradition of the city, she uses found and recycled materials selected both for their formal appeal and historic association.
