Greg Climer (b.1979 in Orlando, FL, lives and works in New York, NY) holds an MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons the New School for Design and BA in Theatre and Design at Rollins College. Climer is interested in the union between seemingly disparate parts of our everyday lives. Textiles and technology are often assumed to only merge in very sci-fi, high concept ways. Climer is interested in how they can converge while maintaining the warmth and comfort we often associate with well-worn garments and beloved blankets. He is an assistant professor of fashion design as well as associate director of first year education at Parson School of Design. His work has been shown at venues including the Museum of Art and Design, Mint Museum of Art, Christopher Stout Gallery, The Visual Studies Workshop Gallery, and Hive Gallery Los Angeles. In 2016 Climer was the Artist in Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design, where he quilted an animated film. In 2015, Hyperallergic Magazine listed him as an “artist to watch” when he debuted the knitted film at Fred Frelinghuysen Presents.
