Amanda Browder: Razzle Dazzle

Razzle Dazzle will be an unforgettable presentation of a collectively produced textile installation led by the Brooklyn-based artist Amanda Browder. Using fabric collected from dozens of recycled, donated, or locally sourced origins, Browder will work directly with Siouxland volunteers and artists during locally hosted Public Sewing Days (dates below) to construct a brightly colored monumentally sized textile sculpture that will be draped over the facade of the Sioux City Art Center building. The resulting piece will display the work and process of creating a large-scale textile installation, but, even more importantly, it will represent the diverse community that built the piece. The spectacle that it produces will act as a stage to stimulate dialogue across civic and cultural boundaries, activating an often-overlooked space in extraordinary ways. Razzle Dazzle will be installed on the Sioux City Art Center during ArtSplash 2024.
