Multidisciplinary Artist
2019 Speaker

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Tali Weinberg is a multidisciplinary artist and educator. Her work is held in public and private collections and is exhibited internationally, including at the Berkeley Art Museum (California), Center for Craft (North Carolina), Chazen Art Museum (Wisconsin), Philbrook Museum of Art (Oklahoma) and Zhejiang Art Museum (China).

Through weaving, sculpture, thread drawing and works on paper, Weinberg engages processes of knowledge production, record keeping, valuing and mythmaking. Her current research explores the mechanisms through which we come to understand climate change, from data and journalistic narrative to embodied experience. Materializing climate data as abstracted woven landscapes, she draws on the intimacy, sociality and science of textiles to reveal interconnections among multiple forms of knowledge and between corporeal, ecological and political bodies.

Weinberg’s research is supported by multiple grants and residencies: a Windgate fellowship to Vermont Studio Center, a Collins Foundation–funded residency at Oregon College of Art and Craft, a Serenbe focus fellowship, a Lia Cook jacquard residency and a Caldera residency, among others. She has taught at California College of the Arts (CCA), Headlands Center for the Arts and Penland School of Craft, and she lectures throughout the U.S. Weinberg is currently the recipient of a three-year Tulsa artist fellowship and teaches at the University of Tulsa. She holds an MFA from CCA and an MA and a BA from New York University.
