  • Tia Keo / PERMISSION 28th Annual Contemporary Finnish American solo exhibition On view at Finlandia University Gallery in Hancock, MI from November 29, 2018 - February 15, 2019 435 Quincy St. Hancock, MI 49930 All exhibition photos by Tom Adolphs
  • Tia Keo updated the Artwork FORCED/FORCE no.1
    In a man’s world, a woman’s attempt at success is forced … measured by a man’s standard, a system of laws, a definition of beauty, a permission granted or denied. We force ourselves to fit into a mold that was not made for us, was not crafted for our health or wellness or success. We are forced physically, psychologically, emotionally to adapt to an environment that objectifies and does us harm … even if only by not understanding our true nature. Our successes exist within the confines…
  • Hold yourself together is suggestive of the tension that exists in the emotional reckoning and restructuring that is required during a paradigm shift like the one #metoo has inspired. Women know all too well the societal importance of maintaining composure in the face of objectification, discrimination, injustice, harassment, abuse … and even progress. Whether conscious or subconscious it is a mantra that women have lived by. Hold yourself together – even if you are ripped open, even if yo…

  • This 60 pc. copper sculpture installation was commissioned for the lobby of Lowa 46 in South Minneapolis in April 2019.
  • Tia Keo updated the Artwork Return to Weaving
    Completed during a 7-weekend solo-retreat  to reconnect with my creative spirit. These weavings reconnected me to myself as an artist after a period of burn-out. 
  • Tia Keo updated the Artwork Early Sculpture Studies
    These first sculpture explorations came out of a 2017 MN State Arts Board Grant. The entire body of work will be on exhibit at the Duluth Art Institute January 11-February 25, 2018.
  • Women’s armor is different from men's armor. We do not battle in the same way as men, so why would our armor simply be an adaptation of the kind they wear? Women’s work is our armor. It is historically how we have connected with our community of women - through quilting bees and knitting circles and weaving clothe. Our work and our armor are a part of us. We knit and stitch and weave our resistance into us. It is more a part of our soft bodies than an implement that we wear. It is in our min…
  • #100daysofcreativebalance was started on April 4, 2017. Committing to one piece (and one piece only) a day, each piece started with a 10x10 dot grid. The daily practice continued on after day 100 (July 14, 2017) but the grid was not carried forward. The 100 day project was installed at ASI for two months from August-October 2017.
