Hope Wang: before there was a hill there was a hole

Opening Saturday, May 14th, from 6PM - 9PM
On view through Saturday, June 11th
Hope Wang is a Chicago-based artist, arts facilitator, and poet. Contending with sloppy traces of human activity around sites of industrial labour, her work considers the ways architectural spaces become artifacts of memory. She likes to joke that she creates geo-caches of public places she has cried in. She hosts and operates LMRM, a floor loom rental studio for Chicago fiber artists. Wang is also a co-organizer of Chicago Textile Week 2019 and 2021, Chicago’s first textile exposition featuring a week-long program of events highlighting the vast and innovative work spanning interiors, architecture, fine arts, craft, and fashion. She received her BFA (2018) from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is a 2021 recipient of the gener8tor Art Accelerator Program Grant. She has attended the Digital Weaving Lab Residency at Praxis Fiber Workshop (2021); The Weaving Mill WARP Residency (2019); and Spudnik Press Cooperative Fellowship (2019).
Exhibition continues through Saturday, June 11, 2022.
