BIO

Yahn Nemirovsky is an emerging artist, educator, and recent graduate of OCAD University's Textiles program. They are interested in the intersections of textile and paper media practices, and in their making they take inspiration from the intimate object world of the perzine. In early 2019, Yahn was a guest artist and workshop facilitator for Community Voices, a creative partnership program between the Textile Museum of Canada, local artists, and local social agencies. They lead a series of creative stitching workshops for the youth at Triangle Program—recognized as the country's only 2SLGBTQ+ High School. Yahn later held the position of Education Assistant at the Textile Museum, and is currently back working with the team again in the Public Engagement & Communications department. 

 

Yahn's textile work has been exhibited at Xpace Cultural Centre, the Artist Project, and as part of the Bi Arts Festival since its inception in 2017, at Beaver Hall Gallery, Glory Hole Gallery, and D-Beatstro.
