Bio

Keeley Haftner (b. 1985) is a Chicago-based Canadian artist who explores her own intense yearning toward non-living matter through a sculptural practice of transformation. Haftner obtained her BFA in fine arts in 2011 from Mount Allison University (MTA) and completed her MFA in 2016 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) in Fiber and Material Studies. Haftner is the founder and previous director of Street Meet Festival (Saskatoon) for street and graffiti art, now in its fifth year of programming. She is currently one of the four curators and founders of Public Access gallery (Chicago), and one of three producers for the Bad at Sports THINKS to Think.

She has given workshops and talks at galleries, universities, conferences and festivals including AASHE Minneapolis, Transmediale (Berlin), Concordia University (Milieux Institute), and University of Chicago (Hack Arts Lab).
