Structure for the Fugitive
2016, Mills College Art Museum

Structure for the Fugitive was an installation centered around 17 pieces of antique lace in the Mills College Art Museum collection. A plaster supportive display armature was created for each piece of lace, and a gallery within the museum was created to house these displays. The interior walls of the enclosed gallery were painted lavender–a color typically associated with genteel femininity. Yellow gel filters were added to the glass display case lights to neutralize the walls, washing-out the color's association and creating a ghostly gray.

This project was completed as part of the Art + Process + Ideas residency, a partnership between the Mills College Art Department and the Mills College Art Museum.
