About the Instructor:

Linda Zeb Hang (1986, Southside Stockton, California) is a sculptor, dancer, beadworker, and artist book expedition designer—dilating the fugitive dimensions of our optical and spiritual illiteracy through wearable assemblage, performance, painting, and book arts into a grand medicine society. Founded in 2013, their studio FIST publishes and considers art as objective oxygen: whereby endophytic calyxes, charas of the mind, surface endurance, terrain modification, movement observatories, ocular imaging, and manipulation of graphics are united in non-deceptive, indivisible, trustworthy, and self-determinant curriculums. In presenting a consonant behavior within our emotional, intelligent, and geological terrain—these critical geographies self-assemble within the distribution EQ of our collective consciousness, liberating itself through haptic tribology of patterns, open syllables, and bibliophilic wombs. By bending optical paths within the machine, their scanning of histories, and what has been made invisible, remains compact yet retains a deep depth of field.

Hang’s presentations have exhibited nationally at MoMA PS1, New York; Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles; NADA with Printed Matter, Inc.; and internationally in Tokyo, Japan. Her workings are held within collective and public spheres, including the Carl A. Kroch Library, RMC at Cornell University (NY), and the Marjorie G. and Carl W. Stern Book Arts & Special Collections Center at the San Francisco Public Library (CA). Hang studied at the Art Institute of San Francisco, California, and currently lives and works in New York City.
