Cooped-up Knitting

Ongoing—A series of online events with artist Lisa Anne Auerbach focused on the Danish tradition of Hønsestrik—translation: “chicken knitting”—in which sweater patterns embody political expression. The Los Angeles-based Auerbach has made political knitting central to her practice for more than a decade, alongside projects in photography, publishing and DIY activism. During COVID-19 quarantine, Usdan Gallery is hosting Zoom gatherings for skill sharing, yarn swaps, group knitting and Hønsestrik presentations ahead of Lisa’s solo exhibition in fall 2021.
