This month’s Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) lecture is inspired by one of the Carter’s most recent acquisitions, Ruth Asawa’s Untitled(S.453, Hanging, Three-Lobed, Three-Layered, Continuous Form within a Form) (c. 1957–59). Viewers can hear about the art of nontraditional sculpting from two women who have embraced it.

Amber Bailey is a fiber artist who has worked in Fort Worth ISD for 15 years and currently teaches at the Young Women’s Leadership Academy. Bailey organizes yarn bombings around Fort Worth and will talk about her crocheted artwork in relation to Asawa’s process.

Carmen Menza is a media artist whose practice spans video, light sculptures, music, and site-specific public art employing visuals and sound. She will talk about how Asawa helped pave the way for women artists to explore nontraditional materials in their artmaking.

Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) is a monthly lecture series that occurs on the fourth Thursday of each month, January through April. Viewers can join on Zoom to hear from local experts about a work in the Carter's collection, helping us see art through the lens of their own work and passions.
