Visiting Artist Program: Lecture by Amanda Ross-Ho
|Event Title:||Visiting Artist Program: Lecture by Amanda Ross-Ho|
|Event Description:|| |
The Visiting Artist Program and the Visual Arts Center (VAC) are pleased to bring Amanda Ross-Ho to campus in the fall for a public lecture. In the spring, Ross-Ho will create a new on-site work for the VAC. Ross-Ho’s work brings together seemingly oppositional languages and spaces: personal imagery and autobiographical artifacts are mined for formal qualities; traces and residues from studio practices are meticulously re-created as deliberate gestures; boundaries between private work and public display are collapsed. Ross-Ho revisits her images and forms in multiple iterations, creating scale shifts, moving among different media, and using positive and negative structures.
Ross-Ho received her B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1998) and her M.F.A. from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles (2006). Her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and in the 2008 Whitney Biennial. Ross-Ho lives and works in Los Angeles and is currently represented by Cherry and Martin, Los Angeles, Mitchell-Innes and Nash, New York, and The Approach, London.
