About the Teaching Artist


"My goal is to create textiles that speak for themselves, are rich in texture and detail, narrative, ornate, and painterly. I see each work as a composition, with a story of its own for people to wear and tell."


Pangea Kali Virga is an enthusiastic creator whose work spans many sides of the art and fashion industry. She is a fiber artist, fashion designer, stylist, curator, creative director, teacher, and producer with high standards and a conceptual spirit. Her aim is to build collaborative inclusive networks and moving experiences through her work and all of her projects. Pangea is currently dedicated to helping transform the fashion industry to be a more sustainable and equitable one, creating wearable art of upcycled materials, supporting her belief in the power of clothing as storyteller, cultural marker, and political catalyst. Pangea is interested in exploring the relationship between skin and fabric, the individual and nature, and the ego and society, with a specific regard to the liminal tension between the inner self and the body's presentation. She has found great comfort and liberation through clothing and fashion, and the work she creates is made in hopes of extending those experiences to the viewer and wearer. Ms. Virga is also the Executive Producer of Miami On Sight, a community-minded fashion project producing recurring events with a focus on sustainability, accessibility, and inclusivity to create connections between the arts community and the general public. Pangea also offers monthly workshop open to the public teaching sustainable sewing techniques using creative exercises. Her work has been published in 60+ international publications.
