Annica Cuppetelli is a fiber/installation artist and fashion designer based in Detroit, MI. Drawing on her past experience in the fashion world, her practice lies at the intersection of fashion, design and art. Her process uses techniques and materials borrowed from garment making and fashion design and applies them to create forms that evoke garments, but exist as sculptures and spaces. Rather than simply wrap, transform, or conceal, she attempts to question fashion in order to reveal its complicated relationship with the female body and identity.
Annica is a recipient of the Daimler Financial Emerging Artist Award, the Searchlight Emerging Artist Award and was a nominee for the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant. She also collaborates with Cristobal Mendoza as Cuppetelli and Mendoza, focusing on the creation of site-specific, multimedia installations that address issues of space, interaction and materiality. Their work has been exhibited in the Denver Art Museum, Telfair Museums (Savannah, GA), the Biennial of Video and Media Arts (Chile, 2012) and festivals such as Nemo 2013 (France) Scopitone 2012 (France), ISEA 2012, FILE 2011 (Brazil), FAD 2011 (Brazil), video_dumbo 2013 (NYC, USA) among others. They were selected as Kresge Visual Arts Fellows in 2015. Cuppetelli obtained her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art (Fiber, 2008) and her BFA from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI.

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will take place with Miller’s ongoing exhibition as a backdrop for the talk.
