“Insecurity: An Installation by Julie John Upshaw” at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles – Pointer to Review on Metroactive, The Arts in San Jose

A review of Julie John Upshaw’s installation titled “Insecurity” at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles can be found on Metroactive – The Arts in San Jose.

  

An excerpt reads: “BY NOW, the ritual of security clearance at the airport has become second nature. The traveler passes through an electronic portal to the limbo of the departure lounge. In an edgy installation called Insecurity at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, Julie John Upshaw ups the anxiety level of that common experience.”

    I felt the show was partially successful. I really ejoyed her figure pieces as they were presented in the “booths”. I also enjoyed the thread art on the lab coats, but I felt the display of the lab coats and the space itself did not convey the anxiety of airport security.
