“Pull a thread here and you’ll find it’s attached to the rest of the world.”- Nadeem Aslam
6X is a collective of midwest based artists who engage audiences through contemporary jewelry.
Mistaken for Strangers explores the similarities of our seemingly different practices. Ties, which may not consciously be acknowledged at a simple glance, are visible upon further consideration of approaches to concept, material, and process. 6X traces these threads of commonality, linking each member together through various degrees of separation. Our explorations, personal interests, and experiences, become part of a greater story; creating an organized narrative using the momentum of these tangential threads. This exhibition brings to light innate patterns that stem from the rules we follow in our respective bodies of work and, in turn, provokes consideration of our interconnected world.
