        Consuelo Jimenez Underwood: Weaving Together Content and Form | Craft in America

        Consuelo Jimenez Underwood: Weaving Together Content and Form explores the work of fiber artist Consuelo Jimenez Underwood in the THREADS episode. Underwood incorporates weaving, sewing, painting, and appliqué to produce a proud political statement, representing her own history as a migrant agricultural worker, signifying her hybrid culture as well as the arbitrary lines that divide. Artistic expression is tied to traditional Huichol weaving, which she incorporates into her large textiles. Borders and barriers are the vocabulary she uses to describe and celebrate the lives of migrant workers and indigenous people.
