Kris Rumman is a Palestinian-American artist who creates multidisciplinary work that is migratory, situationally responsive and inextricably linked to the geopolitics of the places that she has lived. Captivated by architecture, power, and chance, she construct spaces that reshuffles these elements.
Rumman grew up in Toledo, Ohio, the birthplace of the Studio Glass Movement, where she began her nearly two decade long relationship with glass. She graduated with a BFA from Bowling Green State University in 2008 and an MFA from Tyler School of Art and Architecture in 2018.
She has taught at various institutions around the country, including Temple University’s Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Chautauqua Institution, Salem Community College, Toledo Museum of Art, and Pratt Fine Arts Center.
