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


Kang has exhibited throughout the world including the United States, 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.
