Peregrine Honig made a name for herself when a set of her prints were purchased by the Whitney Museum of American Art, establishing her as the youngest living artist to be included in the permanent collection. Peregrine’s sculptures, imagery, and texts explore themes of sexual vulnerability, trends in disease, and social hierarchies.
Peregrine resides in Kansas City, MO where she attended Kansas City Art Institute. She currently curates projects and annual events under the umbrella "Fahrenheit" and owns a lingerie boutique "Birdies". To date, her work is part of the permanent collections of the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and The Chicago Art Institute, among others. She has had solo exhibits in Santa Fe, Kansas City, and Chicago, and has shown in group exhibitions in New York and across the globe. Peregrine is a recipient of the Art Omi International Artists’ Residency and the Charlotte Street Fund. She recently produced a magazine titled Widow, in collaboration with Landfall Press, that explores the relationship between fashion and art.

“Lace is the fabric of ceremony: virgins and whores, brides and saints, pastries
and mourners, drug dealers and corsetry. From a conventional trim around the
edges to extreme fetishist binding, lace marries the ethereal to the forbidden.”

Unveiling of Shuttlecarts
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Friday 12th August
6-8 p.m. | Bloch Lobby
7 p.m. Champagne toast
Free, tickets required
How would you like to take a ride in a gilded bird cage? Or feel like royalty being driven in a filigreed chariot? The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art commissioned artist Peregrine Honig to dress up a pair of Shuttlecarts that move Museum visitors from one end of the building to the other. The motorized carts, now called Gilded Cage and Sweet Chariot, were first introduced to Museum visitors in April, but they have now been transformed by Honig.
“It’s significant that we are employing a local artist’s creativity at the Nelson-Atkins, where creativity is celebrated every day,” said Julián Zugazagoitia, CEO & Director of the Nelson-Atkins. “Peregrine’s unique sensibility is ideal for this project, which injects a feeling of fun and whimsy into the Museum.”
