Visit LMRM, a venture housed in a shared studio space, provides two floor looms for rent to artists with weaving practices. Started by Chicago-based artist, arts facilitator, and poet, Hope Wang, LMRM stems from the desire to see a fiber art studio where people have a touch point to access quality equipment and community connection with minimal barriers.
Wang will also talk about her practice in the context of digital weaving. She uses hand-weaving, screen-printing, painting, and photography to reproduce architectural “scars” and patterns from common construction materials. Wang received her BFA (2018) from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is a 2021 recipient of the gener8tor Art Accelerator Program 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), amongst others.
This event is in-person and we ask that all participants remain fully masked indoors. Stay tuned for more information.
