Artist Travis Boyer will be leading an engaging dip dyeing event at CAMH. Boyer places a vat of indigo dye in the center of a giant canvas laid on the ground. Participants activate the performance by dipping clothing, blankets, and other cloth materials brought in by participants for the event. Through the working process, an abstract artwork is generated on the canvas made from the drips, splashes, and streaks of indigo. After the performance, attendees are free to take their newly dyed objects home.
If you have questions or concerns about objects that will be allowed to be used in this performance please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Travis Boyer is a New York based artist and holds a MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts at Bard College. Boyer has an extensive history of collective and individual practice derived from painting and fibers arts disciplines. Boyer’s interest lies in the transferable logic of fiber arts to painting, and the performative possibilities of textiles. Boyer’s compulsion is to become part of the space and enact a heritage of ideas onto it through transitional geometry, soft architecture, and socio-kinetic sculpture. He has exhibited across the country, including Participant Inc., New York, John Connelley Presents, New York; Evas Arche, New York, Louis B. James Gallery, New York; SOMA Arts, San Francisco, Dumbo Arts Center, New York; and Andrew Krepps Gallery, New York; and internationally at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Piso 51, Mexico City, and Geukins & De Vil, Antwerp. He was among the first artists awarded the Fire Island Artist Residency.
