MARCH 17 - MAY 13, 2023
This is the debut solo exhibition by artist Simone Elizabeth Saunders! Unearthing Unicorns showcases large-
scale textile artworks that explore the iconography of the famed high Renaissance era Unicorn
Tapestries and Art Nouveau advertising through a contemporary Black feminist lens. The artist’s
sweeping art historical reframing is rendered in vibrant polychrome hand-tufted textiles that both
reference the prized woven tapestries of the Renaissance as well as the more contemporary feminist
craft movement of the later 20th century.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support:
