In a spectacular finish to its Spring 2021 programming, Foto Relevance is pleased to announce the gallery’s debut solo exhibition of works by Alia Ali, on view July 9 — September 4, 2021. Featuring selections from Ali’s FLUX, FLOW, INDIGO, andحب (hub) // LOVE series, Cartographies of Pattern dives headfirst into the intricate and often unreconcilable political, historical, and economic legacies of textiles. Considering everything from the expansive global trade routes traveled by certain fabrics, to the classification and nomenclature of particular prints, to the communicative potential of a pattern’s symbolism, Ali ushers viewers into a conversation about colonialism, cultural cross-pollination, and borders that simultaneously unite and divide people.
