Moroccan wedding blankets

Moroccan wedding blankets (or handira) are woven out of sheep’s wool, cotton and linen in anticipation of a wedding, by the bride’s female relatives. It can take hours—even weeks—of work to attach hundreds of mirrored sequins once the weaving is complete. During that time, the bride’s relatives teach her all about the birds and the bees, among other marital duties and expectations. After the wedding, the bride ties the blanket around her neck like a cape and takes it to her new home!

This Thursday, August 1, San Francisco’s Spoke Art will debut painter Scott Scheidly’s“The Pinks.” While humorous at a first glance, Scheidly’s work unearths interesting social dynamics through its exploration of the cultural implications of colors. The artist paints realistic portraits of male world leaders and public figures, softening their hyper-masculine auras with a color palette of lilacs, pinks and magentas. Scheidly’s work draws attention to the biases coded in the imagery that surrounds us and the gendered implications of the visual signifiers of power. Take a look at our sneak peek of the works in “The Pinks” after the jump and see the exhibition August 1 through 24.
