Holding Weight contrasts the work of two artists working in fibers, Taylor Barnes and Delaney Smith. Through text and abstraction, Barnes and Smith invite the viewer into a dialogue concerning language, identity, and experience. Hinting at the fluctuating shifts of meaning and understanding, their works emphasize the complicated navigation of the self under the weighty constraints of historical and contemporary narratives.
