Part archive, part installation, and part storytelling, Punto in Aria: A Repairing Mend is a deeply engaging and site-specific installation that invites the viewer not only to stay a while, but to return and witness changes throughout the show. Patricia Miranda’s deep dive into the traditional art of lace making, combined with her vision for upcycling and reimagining her source material, has coalesced into something entirely fresh and collaborative.

Artist Statement:
My work explores the labor of care by women through mending, remembering, collecting, and preserving, in repurposed textile installations created with donated lace from The Lace Archive, an historical community archive of lace and family histories.
