Who We Are
We are a Bushwick based artist collective working in contemporary and traditional fibers process, dedicated to confronting the divide between notions of ‘art’ and ‘craft’. We believe that fibers practice is historically rooted in the domestic sphere, inextricably linked to Feminism and speaks to the role of labor.
Acknowledging both personal narratives and institutional histories, our members seek to create new models for making and viewing work.
S N A G rejects the need for a white cube model or canonization, instead drawing inspiration from DIY ethic and punk ideology.
1. Art is something you make with your hands that brings you joy.
2. The process of creating is just as important as the meaning of the creation

4. Beauty can be found in the mundane and the sublime
5. Make it up as you go along
6. Art is the personal made public
7. It is everybody's first time
8. Exposing the process of creation is vulnerable and powerful
9. Art is not made in a bubble
