Assistant Professor of Fashion Systems and Materiality
Anette Millington is a research-based artist, designer, and educator. She investigates the intersections of psychology, geometry, pattern formulation, and decorative arts in her textile and fiber works. Her studio practice engages museum collections to access information structures embedded within cultural objects. This inquiry has lead to her current research, developing a series of textiles based on digitally coded generative art, in which embellishment is related to language and natural systems. Anette has an extensive background in design education and curriculum development. She is an Assistant Professor of Fashion at Parsons School of Design for the academic year 2018-2019. She served in her prior role at Parsons as Part-Time Assistant Professor in First Year for 9 years and as Special Assistant to the Provost for Learning Portfolios. She has also worked in museum education at the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Arts and Design, and the Brooklyn Museum. Upcoming is her installation designed for the Tech Nomad Trend Space at Playtime New York. Recent exhibitions include Pattern, Surface Design Association Member Gallery, Formation, the Art Lot in Brooklyn, and New Legacies Contemporary Quilts, Lincoln Center, CO.
