Ming Studios will open another of its international residency installations on Sept. 3. “Color Story” by Dutch artists Kathrin Niemann and Kristen Cooper will run from Sept. 3 to Oct. 24 at Ming, 420 S. 6th St., Boise.
The duo started collaborating 5 years ago with a focus on textile art and design. In 2012,they founded Driftwood, a plant-dyed organic-clothing line, and opened the first natural dye studio in Berlin, Germany.
Through photography, projection, textile, and installation work they manipulate familiar scenarios from art history, science, museum displays, and daily life into a story that revolves around the aesthetics of natural dyeing.
You can meet the artists at an opening reception at 6 p.m. Sept. 3.
