Visual Voices Colloquium is the Professional Lecture Series of the School of Art and Design and represents a window into the professional world of art and design. Speakers are chosen with faculty guidance to represent leading and emerging talented practitioners, as well as artists whose work lies beyond the subject areas of the program offerings. On October 21, 2021 Visual Voices featured a conversation with Amanda Ross-Ho recorded over Zoom.
Amanda Ross-Ho is an interdisciplinary artist and professor of sculpture at the University of California, Irvine. Amanda Ross-Ho’s work takes the form of sculptural installations and material environments that propose dynamic and imagined ecologies of labor, time, and the building of speculative archives. Through close observation, she identifies and brings into form connective tissues between personal and eternal conditions. She holds a BFA from the School of the Art institute of Chicago and an MFA from the University of Southern California. She has exhibited, lectured, and taught widely, nationally and internationally, including at the 2008 Whitney Biennial, The Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, The Walker Art Center, the Bonner Kunstverein, and the Vleshaal Contemporary Art Center. Recently she was included in Crack Up Crack Down, the 33rd Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts curated by Slavs and Tatars, and presented a solo exhibition at the Kunsthall Stavanger, Norway. She has presented commissioned public works at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, City Hall Park, New York City, the Parcours Sector of Art Basel Switzerland, and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Her work has been featured in Artforum, The New York Times, ArtReview, Modern Painters, Art in America, Flash Art, Art + Auction, and Frieze, among others. Ross-Ho lives and works in Los Angeles.
