Neda Al-Hilali

Neda Al Hilali is a Czech-born, Los Angles-based artist who was one of the leading female artists working in large-scale three-dimensional fiber in the 1970s. She adopted processes that had traditional origins in the domestic realm, including crochet and knotting, and elevated them to the level of fine art. Al Hilali studied with Bernard Kester at UCLA and went on to teach at Scripps in Claremont, CA. She has worked with metal, paper, and various other materials in her sculptural, performance and installation work.
