Levon Kafafian is a queer interdisciplinary Armenian-American practitioner creating tactile and sensory works on the threshold of transition. Applying the process of weaving beyond thread into visual, performative and social practice, Kafafian engages the space between disparate elements, investigating the intersections of identity, culture, nature and place.
Kafafian's current work includes two multilayered public experiences; The Stitching Hour - an evening of public performance transforming textile process into bodily movement in a historic fashion district & Obsidian - an evening of performances and dance activating and queering spiritual space in the context of heritage and futurism.
Kafafian holds a BFA in Crafts: Fibers from the College for Creative Studies and a BA in Anthropology from Wayne State University.
Kafafian is co-creative director of Fringe Society, an artist collective collaborating to create works that spark thought around individual and collective roles in creating a more just and equitable future.
