Los Angeles Times writer Sharon Mizota reviewed Faith Wilding: Fearful Symmetries, a traveling exhibition of lesser-known work the SAIC Professor Emeritus of Performance. Faith Wilding is widely known for her work Crocheted Environment, which was shown in the famous 1972 feminist exhibition Womanhouse. “The rest of Wilding’s career, which has spanned 40 years and also includes drawing, painting and performance, has been largely ignored,” writes Mizota. “But a gorgeous retrospective, originally organized by Chicago art space Threewalls and now on view at Pasadena’s Armory Center for the Arts, does much to rectify that lapse.” SAIC alum and former faculty member Shannon Stratton (MFA 2003) and Abigail Satinsky (Dual MA 2009), who co-founded Threewalls, are the initiating curators for the exhibition.
