Levon Kafafian creates tactile and sensory works on the threshold of transition, applying the process of weaving beyond thread into visual, performative and social practice. Kafafian practices in the Detroit community through the use of textile craft, ancestral lifeways and magical experience.
Kafafian is co-creative director of Fringe Society, an artist collective that creates hybrid, experimental works toward a more just and equitable future. In 2019 Kafafian’s work moves further into critical and speculative discourse on queering ancestral practices.
Kafafian holds a BFA in Crafts: Fibers from the College for Creative Studies and a BA in Anthropology from Wayne State University.
