Tali Weinberg is a multi-disciplinary artist and educator. Her work is held in public and private collections and is exhibited internationally, including at the Berkeley Art Museum (CA), Center for Craft (NC), Chazen Art Museum (WI), Philbrook Museum of Art (OK), and Zhejiang Art Museum (China).

Through weaving, sculpture, thread drawing, and works on paper, she engages processes of knowledge production, record keeping, valuing and myth making. Her current research explores the mechanisms through which we come to understand climate change, from data and journalistic narrative to embodied experience. Materializing climate data as abstracted woven landscapes, she draws on the intimacy, sociality and science of textiles to reveal interconnections between multiple forms of knowledge and between corporeal, ecological, and political bodies.

This research is supported by multiple grants and residencies: a Windgate Fellowship to Vermont Studio Center, a Collins Foundation-funded residency at Oregon College of Art and Craft, a Lia Cook Jacquard Residency, and Caldera, among others. Weinberg has taught at California College of the Arts (CCA), Headlands Center for the Arts, and Penland School of Craft and lectures throughout the US. She is currently the recipient of a three year Tulsa Artist Fellowship and teaches at the University of Tulsa. Weinberg holds an MFA from CCA and an MA and BA from New York University.
