ART EVENT “Resident Artist Talk and Open Studios” at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

May 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2024 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM: Houston Center for Contemporary Craft hosts a talk by artist Hai-Wen Lin who will discuss their kite-making practice, which borrows from the languages of garment construction and pattern-making as a sculptural means of understanding how to free, fly, and extend the body, placing it in conversation with the sun, wind, and sky. After the talk, join Hai-Wen and other current artists-in-residence Sarah Knight and Robert Hodge for open studio visits before they complete their residencies this month.

The artist talk will be held in person and streamed on HCCC’s Facebook Page at 3:00 PM.

ABOUT HAI-WEN LIN: Hai-Wen Lin (they/them) is a Taiwanese-American artist whose work explores constructions of the body and its surrounding environment. Lin grew up in Elk Grove, California, and is currently based in Chicago, Illinois. The artist’s kite-making practice borrows from the languages of garment construction and pattern-making as a sculptural means of understanding how to free, fly, and extend the body, placing it in conversation with the sun, wind, and sky.

Lin earned a Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2023 and a BA with a double major in design and psychology from the University of California, Davis, in 2016. They are an alum of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and attended the Ox-Bow School of Art as a LeRoy Neiman Fellow. Lin has exhibited work at the Pittsburgh Glass Center, the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, 3S Artspace, and the Mosesian Center for the Arts, as well as on the walls of their home, their friend’s home, on a plate, on a lake, and in many skies.
