Participate in The Counterfeit Crochet Project organized by Stephanie Syjuco, a featured artist from The Way That We Rhyme exhibition. Syjuco and friends will teach visitors how to crochet their own luxury brand accessories.
The Counterfeit Crochet Project got started when Syjuco posted instructions on her website on how to knit counterfeit luxury accessories in crochet, offering the public a do-it-yourself alternative to investing in corporate brands. A good number of people followed her instructions to create one of a kind, luxury rip-off masterpieces, and Syjuco has assembled a selection of these accessories for display in the exhibition. A warning: even though many of these items are exquisite, none can be bought or sold. In order to own a work of Counterfeit Crochet, gallery visitors must learn how to make the items themselves.
