MFA Photography 2016 alumni Kyle Meyer has announced his solo show “Interwoven” at Yossi Milo. Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to present Interwoven, an exhibition of artworks woven from photographic prints and fabric by artist Kyle Meyer. The show will open with a reception for the artist on Thursday, November 1 from 6:00 – 8:00pm and will be on view through Saturday, December 8. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Kyle Meyer has worked between eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) and New York City since 2009, creating richly tactile artworks as conceptually layered and complicated as they are visually lush and intricate. Portraits from his Interwoven series reflect an interest in infusing digital photography with traditional Swazi crafts and in giving voice to silenced members of the LGBT community, who are marginalized in eSwatini. Tension between the necessity of the individuals to hide their queerness for basic survival and their desire to express themselves openly inform both the subject and the means of fabricating Meyer’s unique works.
