Through our interviews and discussions with weavers, manufacturers, show promoters, and patrons of the fiber arts we hope to build depth, transparency, and connection within the weaving community. We will also be taking your weaving questions to ask the experts.


51 : John Paul Morabito

This week we are speaking with John Paul Morabito of Chicago, Illinois.

John Paul is a transdisciplinary weaver who engages the medium of tapestry reimagined in the ditigial age. Their work outputs woven forms, moving images, and relational actions to imagine queer grace. Their work has been exhibited internationally, including but not limited to the Zhejiang (zhuh-zhong) Art Museum in China, Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Projects in New York and the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas. They also have work in collections like the Textile Resource Center at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. They have presented papers at the College Art Association Conference and the Textile Society of America Symposium, published essays with Art China, the China Academy of Art Textile Reader 2, and the Journal of Textile Design Research and Practice. Morabito holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where they currently serve on the faculty as an Assistant Professor, Adjunct of Fiber and Material Studies.

We hope you enjoy our conversation with John Paul as cover how they discovered weaving early in their life, queer identity and creation through textiles, the future of weaving and more.
