Artist Hope Wang

Hope Wang



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. Contending with sloppy traces of human activity around sites of industrial labour, her work references building facades that have been eroded, redacted, or defaced. Wang uses hand-weaving, screen-printing, painting, and photography to reproduce these architectural “scars” and patterns from common construction materials. Her interest in reimagining spatial association and visual perception scales into observations of trompe l'oeil and shifts in material reality, codes of spatial authority, and more broadly, how people form complicated relationships with the structures of their daily lives. She 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.
