Misha Kahn Guest Artist

January 27 – 31, 2020
Amphitheater Hot Shop

Watch Guest Artist Misha Kahn collaborate with the Hot Glass Demo Team to realize his designs in glass during live, narrated demonstrations. See Misha and the team at work January 27-31 from 10 am to 4 pm with an hour-long break for lunch.

Misha Kahn was born in Duluth, Minnesota in 1989 and graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2011 with a BFA in Furniture Design. A commissioned installation is currently on view in speechless: different by design at Dallas Museum of Art, an exhibition of multisensory, interactive, and immersive experiences that will then travel to High Museum of Art. Kahn’s work has been exhibited internationally and is in the permanent collection of numerous museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Speed Museum of Art, Louisville, and the Corning Museum of Glass. According to design technologist John Maeda, “Misha creates work for a parallel wonderland, where traditional perception of material and structure is pushed to the edges of the room to make space for one big party.”
