Joana Vasconcelos is one of the most celebrated crochet artists that I’ve written about, and written about often! I wanted to honor her great efforts with a look back at the great works she’s done.
Internationally-recognized crochet artist Joana Vasconcelos has a new solo exhibit opening on March 31st in Brazil. this follows exhibits in Jerusalem, the United Kingdom and Versailles.
She is a prolific, prestigious artist who has done some amazingly creative things with crochet.
Joana’s work is seen internationally in amazing exhibitions and this is good for the entire crochet community to have our craft seen on such a large scale.
All of her work, including her crochet work, weaves together themes of womanhood, femininity, strength, and societal roles. This art challenges people to look at what defines women and women’s art and to question any assumptions made about those things.
