Meeting the Clouds Halfway: Terrol Dew Johnson and Aranda\Lasch exhibit at IAIA Dec 2018

 

Meeting the Clouds Halfway is a collaboration between Tohono O’odham basket weaver Terrol Dew Johnson and architects Aranda\Lasch (Ben Aranda and Chris Lasch) from Tucson and New York. The exhibition features contemporary basketry and architecture that blend traditional craft with modern design. The artworks explore the desert surrounding Tucson as a place of inspiration and opportunity. Based on a shared interest in traditional Tohono O’odham practices and their bearing on modern life, the works are made from the four natural materials of the desert: rock, copper, wood, and grass.
