Soft Material is a collaborative garment-construction project between artists who have an interest in and connection with fashion and textiles, as well as the corporeal, the body, and performativity. The program supports and connects artists living with disabilities whose communal studios were severely interrupted by the pandemic. The project is co-organized by NAN COLLYMORE and CELIA LESH with artists from NIAD, Creative Growth, Elbow Room, and the Center for Craft.
