Tejidos/ Woven is a mixed media collaboration between Chilean artists Ximena Soza and Cristian Muñozwhich combines fiber and paint in a large installation. This work uses weaving as a visual and symbolic representation of the social fabric, reminding us that the fight for social justice anywhere in the world is part of the same struggle, because if one thread is taken out of the fabric, the whole weaving becomes unwoven.

This exhibit explores global issues of social justice and human rights, such as the recent immigrant crisis in Europe, the occupation in Palestine, the disappearances of thousands during the dictatorships in Latin America, deportation in the United States and more.
