Levon Kafafian is a queer interdisciplinary Armenian-American artist 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.
He is a founding member of Fringe Society, an artist collective where he works collaboratively to create works that spark thought around individual and collective roles in creating a more just + equitable future.
He has taught at the Birmingham-Bloomfield Art Center , College for Creative Studies, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
He holds a BFA in Crafts: Fibers from the College for Creative Studies and a BA in Anthropology from Wayne State University.
