Artist and Writer



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 (CA), Center for Craft (NC), Chazen Art Museum (WI), Philbrook Museum of Art (OK), 108 Contemporary (OK), University of Colorado Art Museum (CO), and Zhejiang Art Museum (China). Through weaving, sculpture, thread drawing, and works on paper, she engages processes of knowledge production, record keeping, valuing and myth-making. 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 between multiple forms of knowledge and between corporeal, ecological, and political bodies. This research is supported by multiple grants and residencies: a Serenbe Fiber-Focus Fellowship, a Windgate Fellowship to Vermont Studio Center, a Collins Foundation-funded residency at Oregon College of Art and Craft, a Lia Cook Jacquard Residency, and Caldera, among others. Weinberg has taught at California College of the Arts (CCA), Headlands Center for the Arts, Penland School of Craft, and New York’s Textile Arts Center and lectures throughout the US. Recent and upcoming lectures include the University of Colorado Boulder’s Conference on World Affairs, the Keynote for Fiberart International’s Triennial Symposium, a panel at the College Art Association on “Feminist Interventions in the Technophere,” and a presentation at the California Studies Association’s conference Parched: Dry Times in the Golden State in conversation with community organizers, scientists, and geographers. She is currently the recipient of a three year Tulsa Artist Fellowship and teaches at the University of Tulsa. Weinberg holds an MFA from CCA and an MA and BA from New York University.
