Aram Han Sifuentes is a fiber and social practice artist who works to claim spaces for immigrant and disenfranchised communities. Her work often revolves around skill sharing, specifically sewing techniques, to create multiethnic and intergenerational sewing circles, which become a place for empowerment, subversion and protest. Her works have been exhibited at Pulitzer Arts Foundation (St. Louis, MO), Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (Ithaca, NY), DePaul Art Museum (Chicago, IL), and the Chung Young Yang Embroidery Museum (Seoul, South Korea). Aram is a 2016 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow.
