Aram Han Sifuentes’s art practice situates itself at the intersection of fiber, social practice, performance, and pedagogy. At the core, she creates socially engaged and materially rich projects in an ‘art world’ environment that are available and accessible for those who are disenfranchised, particularly for dispossessed immigrants of color. She confronts social and racial injustices against the disenfranchised and riff off of official institutions and bureaucratic processes to reimagine new, inclusive, and humanized systems of civic engagement and belonging. She does this by creating participatory and active environments where safety, play, and skill-sharing are emphasized. And even though many of her projects are collaborative and communal in nature, they incite and highlight individual’s experiences, politics, and voice. Much of her communal work revolves around sharing skills as a point of connection. Often, sewing techniques are shared to create multiethnic and intergenerational sewing circles, which become a place for empowerment, subversion and protest.
