Victoria Manganiello is an artist, designer, educator, director, producer and organizer. She is the co-founder of Craftwork Collective, co-organizer of electronic textile camp, and a part-time assistant professor of textiles at The New School/ Parsons and NYU.

Exploring the intersections between materiality, technology, geography, and storytelling, Victoria’s multi-disciplinary and installation work, abstract paintings, and kinetic sculptures are made meticulously with hand-woven textiles using hand-spun yarn and hand-mixed natural and synthetic color dyes alongside mechanical alternatives and modern technologies. Her books and films explore stories of women's work, labor and technology and craft histories and futures. She is well-known in the textile community as an accomplished weaver and innovative storyteller and facilitates many socially engaged projects in collaboration with other artists, designers, and educators.
