Explore | Sara Zapata at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

For Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art’s eighth annual commissioned Atrium Project, New York-based artist Sarah Zapata (Peruvian American, born 1988) combines sculptural and textile techniques to create a vibrant and inviting site-specific installation. In her practice, she sources familiar materials—such as acrylic yarn and natural fibers—and traditional art forms including weaving, coiling, sewing, and latch hooking, to articulate the intersections of her plural identities: the daughter of a Peruvian immigrant; a first generation American born in Texas; and a queer woman raised in an Evangelical household.
