Originally from Texas, Robin Kang, is a multimedia artist whose installations, video work, and textiles have been exhibited throughout the US and recently at the Essl Museum in Vienna, Austria.   Robin received her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and currently lives and creates in Brooklyn.  Utilizing various construction techniques with synthetic and industrial materials, she generates an abstract interlacing of memories involving sociopolitical systems and the mechanization of craft and culture. Often referring to relationships between textiles and electronics, her work highlights absence and the residue of industry, while questioning the process of making and the materiality of experience. She has participated in artist residencies in Texas, Michigan, and Beijing. Robin was the founder and director of the Carousel Space Project, an alternative arts project space in Chicago.
