Kerri King & Michael Gabrielle @ Providence City Hall

Michael Gabrielle’s macrame tapestries are optical illusions. Three-dimensional sculptures, they often feel like they exist in two-dimensions when they lay flat or mark a threshold. King’s illustrations on paper, each lovingly extracted from an esoteric primary source, similarly conflate perceptions of depth; they are flattened by analog and digital tools, but are enlivened when brought into conversation with an audience.
