About

American,   —   Hope Wang is a Chicago-based artist, arts facilitator, and poet. She hosts and operates LMRM, a floor loom rental resource for Chicago fiber artists. Wang uses hand-weaving, screen-printing, painting, and photography to reproduce architectural “scars” and patterns from common construction materials. Contending with sloppy traces of human activity around sites of industrial labour, her work references building facades that have been eroded, redacted, or defaced. Her work considers the ways architectural spaces become artifacts of memory, and thus, how spaces themselves become palimpsests of meaning. She likes to joke that she just creates geo-caches of public places she has cried in. Wang received her BFA (2018) from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is a 2021 recipient of the gener8tor Art Accelerator Grant. She has attended the Digital Weaving Lab Residency at Praxis Fiber Workshop; The Weaving Mill WARP Residency; and Spudnik Press Cooperative Fellowship. Her work has been exhibited at Ignition Project Space (Chicago, IL); Gallery No One (Chicago, IL); Chicago Art Department (Chicago, IL); Sullivan Galleries (Chicago, IL); and Zhou B Art Center (Chicago, IL), among others.
