Opening Reception July 12, 7 – 10pm
Gallery hours: Wednesday - Sunday Noon - 5PM
On July 12th the Good Luck Gallery will be surrendering to a Yarn Bombing takeover when the local chapter of guerilla knitters descend upon Chinatown’s center for visionary art and treat it to a textile transformation.
Knitting and graffiti – both marginalized forms of expression – take on a new life in the form of Yarn Bombing, which can serve as a gentle but potent political act. Precedents in the art world include Claes Oldenburg, Mike Kelley and Christo.
"This is A Takeover" will take place at The Good Luck Gallery on July 12th and the exhibit will remain on view for two weeks. If it’s anything like the Granny Squared installation that all but consumed the Craft and Folk Art Museum last year, this should be a dazzling spectacle to behold and interact with.
