Textile Arts LA Artist Talk: Ben Cuevas
A Deep Dive into My Body of Work and Artistic Practice
Ben works most notably in the art of hand knitting that transcends across platforms of performance, video, sculpture, and installation. His work seeks to defy the distinctions of art and craft, digital and handmade, male and female binaries.
“I am an artist whose work is rooted in concepts of otherness, inspired by my queer, non-binary, HIV-positive, Latinx identity. As intersectionality informs my practice, my work is naturally interdisciplinary — involving textiles, photography, sculpture, installation, and more. A central part of my artwork is based in fiber, underscoring queer/feminist ideologies within the gendered history of women’s work.”
This Talk is free with an RSVP
