Opening Day | Erika Torri: The Continuous Thread

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

ERIKA IMG0534

June 11–July 16, 2022

Public Reception: Friday, June 17, 6:30–8:30 PM

JOSEPH CLAYES III GALLERY & ROTUNDA GALLERY

Erika Torri: The Continuous Thread

On display will be approximately 40 of Erika’s textile pieces created in the late 1970s and 80s, along with a selection of artists’ books, portraits, publications and ephemera that represent Erika’s tenure at the library. The weavings are several narrative series that depict family, landscapes, travel and architecture. Exhibited widely in the 1980s, they have not been shown since Erika became Executive Director of the Athenaeum in 1989.

Over the past thirty-five years, Erika has transformed the Athenaeum from a hidden gem of 100 members to an internationally significant arts institution of over 2,000 members–all while maintaining the library’s singularity and intimacy. In developing Athenaeum programming, Erika wove together seamlessly the worlds of contemporary art, library science, music, and arts education. This exhibition will provide an insight into her work and the way she thought about it.

The exhibition can be viewed in the Joseph Clayes III Gallery and the Rotunda Gallery at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library (1008 Wall Street, La Jolla, CA 92037) during open hours, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
