Syd Abady

2022 Artist In Residence

Syd Abady explores the politics and personalities of home spaces through a textiles-based practice. At MAD, she will use the slow-moving, domestic technique of needlepoint to reconsider the significance of seemingly mundane public signifiers, such as maps and real estate signs, that dictate both our public and private lives.

Abady received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Textiles and Nature, Culture, Sustainability Studies with an emphasis on Urban Studies. She has exhibited throughout the US, including at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA LA) and Miami Art Week.
