KNIT ≠ SWEATER
KNIT 
DOES NOT EQUAL SWEATER

A Solo Exhibit by Karelle Levy + KREL Tropical Knitwear Pop-Up Shop

NOVEMBER 30, 2023 - MARCH 3, 2024
Thursday - Sunday 12 - 6 PM

GREEN SPACE MIAMI
7200 Biscayne Blvd, Unit 2
Miami, FL 33138

KNIT ≠ SWEATER,” a solo exhibition by Miami-based fiber artist and 2022 Knight Arts Champion Karelle Levy will open at Green Space Miami (7200 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33138). The exhibit also features a pop-up shop for Levy’s fashion brand KREL Tropical Knitwear.

The title KNIT ≠ SWEATER recognizes the challenges faced by fiber artists, whose artistic medium is overlooked and undervalued since it is often grouped with craft. Because Levy is both a fiber artist and knitwear designer, the theme also honors the same stitches that connect her disciplines into a singular vision for an immersive, interactive, engaging experience. 

Spanning decades of works and new site-specific works, KNIT ≠ SWEATER” ignites a conversation about Levy’s unique experience in defining herself among her peers in the worlds of art, craft and fashion. Works explore her early career as a pioneer of Miami’s fashion scene to large-scale textile installations including Berber Svenska, which depicts her family's immigration to America, and The Interknit, a mobile, interactive activation that has popped up at various art fairs, music festivals and cultural venues throughout the U.S. The exhibit also features Levy’s traveling pop up experience Quickie Couture, where she creates custom knit garments on the spot for visitors.
