D.I.Y.V.I.P. at Home is Where the Needle Marks

My latest installation “D.I.Y.V.I.P.” will be debuting at Pop tArt Gallery as part of Home is Where the Needle Marks, an exhibition of contemporary fiber art.

Please do join us for the opening reception Saturday, June 16th 7-11pm

The exhibition will be on view June 16th to July 8th.

“D.I.Y.V.I.P” is a mixed-media installation exploring boundaries to access and acquisition in the arts and popular culture. The piece includes a hand-knit velvet rope, a larger-than-life print of the pattern and instructions, and several kits that include all the yarn, hardware, and instructions you need to knit a velvet rope of your very own. The pattern and instructions will be available for download from lapoptart.com. Here’s a sneak peak:

About Ben Cuevas

Ben Cuevas is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist whose work spans a wide range of mediums including installation, sculpture, fiber, photography, video, performance, and sound. Often incorporating several of these elements into any given piece, he makes use of digital media as a means of documentation. In light of its pluralistic qualities, he sees his work as a reflection on the condition of embodiment, exploring what it means to have a body, to inhabit a body, to be a body incarnated in, and interacting with this world.
