Robin Kang

Inspired by her southwestern upbringing, Robin Kang reinterprets the tradition of weaving within a contemporary technological context. Utilizing a digitally operated Jacquard handloom, the contemporary version of the first binary-operated machine and argued precursor to the invention of the computer, she hand weaves tapestries that combine mystical symbolism, computer-related imagery, and digital mark-making.


Kang has exhibited throughout the world including the United States, UK, Canada, Spain, Belgium, Austria, Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia. Recent institutional shows include the Queens Museum, New York; the Essl Museum, Vienna, Austria; John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, Wisconsin; and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York, among others. Kang is a recipient of the 2017 NYFA Fellowship in Craft/Sculpture and has studied ancient textile techniques with Shipibo, Quechua, and Scandinavian weavers.
