Misha Kahn

The equilibrium between passion and flippancy is artist Misha Kahn’s self-proclaimed agenda. Whether expressed through performance, installation, furniture, objects, or jewelry his works exude an irreverent goofiness that not only makes you smile but also encourages re-evaluation of our cultural vernacular. Kahn holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence and was a Fulbright Fellow at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel. He has designed and fabricated animatronic figures and displays for Saks 5th Avenue, Macy’s, and Bergdorf Goodman windows in New York. His lamps were featured in Bjarne Melgaard’s installation at the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Kahn’s wacky, but nonetheless functional, “Pig Bench,” made from urethane resin and trash, along with “Sunday Morning Store,” a wall installation of brightly colored, inflated domestic appliances and jewelry, are prominent inclusions in NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
