Jeannine Han Open Studio
Artist, designer and educator Jeannine Han will be housing an open studio with works on view for New York Textile Month. Her work examines the intersection of materiality, technology and social practice via an interdisciplinary studio practice involving fashion, textiles, sculpture and film. Jeannine will present her multiform approach to her studio practice which also involves curating shows from the artist's studio. She will discuss how working with local communities of artist and designers provides a critical framework for making and thinking for cultural knowledge. The works on view are comprised of a collection of textiles as interior and wearable objects, to explore materiality and it’s ability to communicate multiple meanings.
