ARTIST NANCY RIEGELMAN
Nancy Riegelman's extensive art career has focused on exploring different ways that the body can perform as an instrument of production within the creative process. Through drawing, sculpture, embroidery, and poetry, her lines articulate ideas about physicality, impermanence, and the experience of time transcribed through the body.

She has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (MOCA), the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), Long Beach Museum, Los Angeles County Art Museum (LACMA) amongst other institutions throughout the United States. Her work has been collected by LACMA, the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation, Werner Kramarsky, Giles Mahe, Sony Classic films, and more. She was represented by Western Project LA. Over the years, she has lectured worldwide, teaching in India, Japan, China, France, Russia, Korea, and Thailand. Currently, she continues to serve as a distinguished professor at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, as well as ArtCenter, where she has taught for over 25 years.
