october/november - bird ross
mENDING AND FIXING
Bird Ross is a Madison-based studio artist working in textiles, mixed media and mundane objects. She received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and currently energizes her studio practice through collaborative work, both nationally and internationally.
Bird will use her Bubbler residency as a means of opening up to the spontaneous delight that develops through collaboration, and sharing with others her knowledge of fixing. She will invite others to get involved with fixing, mending, and repairing, both objects and concepts. Bird has invited numerous guests – expert fixers – to join her in this work over the course of her residency in a series of workshops. In addition to these workshops, Bird will host a series of open mending hours on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays in October and November where anyone may drop by to work on mending projects.
In addition to her public workshops, Bird will be working with several local organizations to share her work during this residency, including the Neighborhood Intervention Program, the Juvenile Detention Center, the Plato Group and Porch Light.
