The MFA in Visual Studies welcomes multimedia artist Andrea Bowers as part of the 2010-2011 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Working in a variety of media, Andrea Bowers mines the intersection between political activism and art. She is interested in the role of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience in the lives of women. She begins by conducting archival research on a topic, then creates photorealistic drawings, videos and performances that are more poignant than dogmatic. Bowers seeks to contextualize historical events such as the struggle for reproductive rights in relation to our contemporary situation.
