Levon Kafafian

Levon Kafafian is a Detroit-based Armenian-American artist working primarily with textile. Through weaving Kafafian assembles narrative threads of costume, artifact, ritual and installation into stories about possible worlds and potential futures. Their woven fabrics become portals to these other worlds, generating writing that influences future work. They infuse their stories and cloth with future ancestral practice, hybridity and magic, often collaborating toward collective visions.

Levon Kafafian has exhibited work at Stamps Gallery, University of Michigan; Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit; and Arab American National Museum, all in Michigan, among others.
