Margaret Hull is an artist and designer working in textiles, garments, performance, installation, and video who questions the performance of wearing clothes and its effect on representation and image distribution. Her current body of work considers commercial garment patterns as tools to counter planned obsolescence with potential for infinite reproduction and adaptation.
Hull has an MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and a BFA in Fiber from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. She has been awarded residencies at the Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists in Léhon, France, AZ West in Joshua Tree, California, and Ox-Bow School of Art in Saugatuck, Michigan. Her work has been exhibited at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Cranbrook Art Museum. She currently holds the position of Lecturer in Fashion Design and Merchandising at Wayne State University.
