Angie Wilson is an interdisciplinary artist working in textile-based sculpture, installation, social practice, interiors, and costume design. She is interested in the intimacy of textiles – as protective, sheltering, comforting, and expressive. Textiles as clothing and domestic objects signify identity, hold memory, and tell stories. Angie references weaving as a powerful metaphor for interconnectivity - of the universe, our communities, our bodies, and minds. In her work, she opens space for the narrative power of textiles to illustrate the interconnectivity and interdependence of humanity.

Wilson’s exhibitions often include community workshops that offer participants opportunities to experience embodied art making – by connecting to our own innate creativity, we connect to the joyful, universal flow. Together we create, move, and dialogue about how our actions affect and impact one another, political life, and the planet. She collaborates with community arts organizations, dancers, healers, musicians, and scientists to catalyze dynamic community conversations, incorporating art and movement as healing practices, empowering us to create positive change within ourselves and in our communities.
