Eric-Paul Riege (Diné) is a weaver and fiber artist working in collage, durational performance, installation, woven sculpture, and wearable art. Using weaving as both means and metaphor to tell hybrid tales that interlace stories from Diné spirituality with his own interpretations and cosmology, he understands his artworks as animate and mobile. His practice pays homage and links him to generations of weavers in his family that aids him in generating spaces of sanctuary.
Reige’s recent solo exhibitions include Hammer Projects: Eric Paul Reige at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles (2022–2023), Larger than Memory at the Heard Museum in Phoenix (2020), and Hólǫ́—it xistz at the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami (2019). His recent group exhibitions include the Prospect.5 Triennial in New Orleans (2022), the Toronto Biennial of Art (2022), and SITElines Biennial, presented by Site Santa Fe (2018). He holds a BFA, Art Studio and Ecology from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. His work is collected by Forge Project and ICA Miami, among others.
Reige is a member of the Charcoal Streaked Division of the Red Running Into the Water clan. He was born and is based in Gallup, New Mexico.
